New RWJF Chief Talks of Commitment to Service        

Guests and staff of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation meeting at the Westin Hotel in Princeton, NJ on October 26th, 2012 to discuss healthcare and celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the RWJF.

Richard Besser, MD, who recently became president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, talks in a Q&A about his work as a pediatrician, the importance of helping the public understand issues by telling people’s stories, and his thoughts on a Culture of Health. In a video on the RWJF Facebook page, he makes it clear he is open to ideas. Besser was acting director of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and the chief health and medical editor at ABC News.
