Michael Painter

Physician, attorney, and health policy advocate Michael Painter is a senior program officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). He and his colleagues scour the nation and the world looking for great ideas that help build a healthy, just, and equitable future on a warming planet. To Painter, a healthy future is one where humans thrive in harmony with all living things and serve as sacred protectors of our home. From 2003-2004, Painter was a RWJF Health Policy Fellow with Senator William H. Frist, M.D., then majority leader. Prior to that, he was the chief of medical staff at the Seattle Indian Health Board, a community health center serving urban American Indians and Alaska Natives. Michael is an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma.

Speaking Sessions

I felt this conference was life changing. I am truly inspired and am plotting both career and personal changes to live up to the great lessons I learned. Both the sessions and the networking were vital.
