"Turning Point: Collaborating for a New Century in Public Health" is a national program supported by the Robert Wood Johnson and the W. K. Kellogg Foundations. The goal of this initiative is to transform and strengthen the public health infrastructure in the U.S. so that states, local communities, and their public health agencies may respond to the challenge to protect and improve the public's health in the 21st century. This program will highlight some of the successful projects funded through this initiative nationally and in New York State .
