And the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Award for Health Equity Presented by Youth MOVE National at 2017's RockStar Awards goes to… Jacob Griffin! For the past two years, Jacob has focused his efforts on increasing supports for college students in need of counseling and psychological services on campuses by increasing awareness of these issues with university trustees, student affairs administrators, politicians, and campus communities. He formed a task force, and later an independent 501(c)3, dedicated on integrating research and current college trends with best practices. This resulted in increased student success despite adversity. According to his peers, Jacob has served as an inspiration for anyone with whom he engages and is an exemplary role model for youth advocates.
