“This is a bold and imaginative initiative of the president of the University of Washington to identify and build up the essential ingredients for functional communities — human health, environment, education, justice, economic opportunity,” said Neukom. “I can’t imagine a more important initiative with more promise to improve life for literally millions of people. It is a privilege and honor to be a part of it. And, besides, when UW President Ana Mari Cauce calls and asks you to do something with the university, you don’t say no!”

Neukom and the advisory board are charged with providing guidance in areas such as strategic planning and program development, furthering the university’s understanding of population health trends and helping to assess the effectiveness of the initiative.
