WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Trust for America's Health (TFAH) today announced it has received a three-year, $7.6 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to continue its efforts to ensure Americans will have a high quality, accountable and adequately funded 21st century public health system that serves all Americans and helps them lead healthier lives.
