The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation today announced that Bobby Cochran, executive director of Willamette Partnership — a Portland-based environmental nonprofit — has been selected from more than 500 applicants to become part of its esteemed Culture of Health Leaders program.

Cochran will join a cohort of 40 leaders working across many sectors to develop innovative tools that enable people to live longer, healthier lives. He will receive an annual stipend of $20,000 to cover time and expenses related to the three-year program, which includes trainings related to change leadership, health policy, mentoring and executive coaching. As the only delegate from Oregon, and only one of five from the West Coast, Cochran hopes to position the Pacific Northwest as a leader linking healthy environments to healthy people.
