Position Summary:

County Health Rankings & Roadmaps (CHR&R) offers actionable data, evidence, guidance, and stories that inspire and support community health improvement efforts. The annual County Health Rankings are based on a model of population health that emphasizes the many social, economic, physical, clinical, and other factors that influence both how long and how well we live. CHR&R helps communities identify the challenges and opportunities for improving health for all and provides evidence-informed strategies that are shown to work in real life.

Since 2003, the UW Population Health Institute (UWPHI) has published the County Health Rankings for Wisconsin. Starting in 2009, UWPHI began collaborating with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to bring the Rankings and health improvement guidance to communities across the nation.

Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison. We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion enrich the university community. We commit ourselves to the pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, outreach, and diversity as inextricably linked goals.
