"Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Journey to Achieve Health Equity"

**About the Speaker**

Dwayne Proctor, Ph.D. is senior adviser to the president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Dr. Proctor came to RWJF in 2002 as a senior communications and program officer. His early work at RWJF focused on preventing adolescent and child health risks stemming from drinking, drugging, injuries and pregnancy. In 2006, Proctor was promoted to lead the Foundation’s highest priority--reversing the childhood obesity epidemic by 2015. In that capacity he leveraged resources by forging strong relationships with funders, government agencies, corporations and other key stakeholders. As senior adviser, Proctor builds new strategic relationships for RWJF and tracks the nation and the Foundation’s progress in achieving health equity. Prior to joining the Foundation, Proctor was assistant professor at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine teaching health communications and health marketing. As a Fulbright Fellow in Senegal, West Africa, Proctor employed marketing, social science and epidemiological approaches to assess the effectiveness of HIV/AIDS public service announcements in raising awareness of AIDS as a national health problem. Dr. Proctor is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the NAACP Foundation and an Ad Council advisor. He received his doctoral, master’s and bachelor’s degrees in marketing and communication science from the University of Connecticut.
