About Us

The National Program Office

The Evidence for Action National Program Office is housed in the Center for Health and Community at the University of California, San Francisco.

The program supports the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s vision to build a Culture of Health across the United States.

The Team

The National Program Office is led by Director Nancy Adler, PhD; Co-Director David Vlahov, RN, PhD, FAAN; Associate Directors Maria Glymour, ScD, MS, and Laura Gottlieb, MD, MPH; and Deputy Director Erin Hagan, PhD, MBA. We have complementary areas of interest and expertise. While we have all been involved in research and training in social determinants of health and population health, we have various disciplinary backgrounds and areas of focus.
