Seeking Research on How Policies, Laws, and Regulations Can Help Build a Culture of Health

With the focus to generate actionable evidence to guide legislators and other policymakers, public agencies, educators, advocates, community groups, and individuals, the RWJF Policies for Action Program has launched its first Call for Proposals (CFP).

Research should inform the significant gaps in our knowledge regarding how policies can serve as levers to improve population health, well-being, and equity. Approximately $1.5 million will be awarded through this CFP.

An informational webinar will take place on Tuesday, February 16 from 1-2p.m. ET, where Director of P4A, Scott Burris, JD, will answer any questions you may have.

Temple University Center for Public Health Law Research

Based at the Temple University Beasley School of Law, the Center for Public Health Law Research supports the widespread adoption of scientific tools and methods for mapping and evaluating the impact of law on health. It works by developing and teaching public health law research and legal epidemiology methods (including legal mapping and policy surveillance); researching laws and policies that improve health, increase access to care, and create or remove barriers to health (e.g., laws or policies that create or remove inequity); and communicating and disseminating evidence to facilitate innovation.
