In the latest NCFR member spotlight…

Ashton L. Chapman, Ph.D., has been selected to participate in a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leadership development program designed to equip leaders across the country — in every sector and field — to collaborate, break down silos, and use their influence to make communities healthier and more equitable.

Specifically, Chapman was selected to participate in the Culture of Health Leaders program. Designed for people from all sectors — from technology and business to architecture and urban planning — Culture of Health Leaders fosters cross-sector collaboration. The program enables participants to remain in their homes and jobs and directly apply everything they learn to improving policy and practice in their communities and organizations.

Chapman received her Ph.D. in human development and Family Science from the University of Missouri and is currently a postdoctoral research associate in human development and family studies at Iowa State University (ISU) and associate director of research and engagement for the ISU Translational Research Network, familiarly known as U-TuRN.

As a member of the Culture of Health Leaders program’s newest cohort, Chapman’s work will focus on ways to improve the social and emotional health of older adults and their families in rural America.
