Turning Point

Turning Point is a national initiative of the W.K. Kellogg and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations to transform and strengthen public health infrastructures, founded on the idea that diverse groups working together can better identify and influence the determinants of health.  Turning Point exemplifies the institute of Medicine's vision of public health" "what we as a society do collectively to assure the conditions for people to be healthy."

Turning Point starts at the local level, building broad community support and participation in public health priority setting and action.  Turning Point begins with what some would call "social capital," engaging and linking affected people at the local level.  Turning Point is anchored in two convictions: communities have strength and everyone has a stake in public health.
