As a nonprofit CEO who is, first and foremost, a husband and father of three, Rob cares deeply about promoting justice and equitable opportunities for all kids to be able fulfill their dreams. After earning his graduate degree focused on U.S. human rights foreign policy, Rob worked on U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) programs and at other nonprofits that shaped his belief that health is a human right. Rob believes that we have under-invested in kids’ health and well-being and that healthy kids make a better world.

Rob Bisceglie: Healthier kids and healthier partnerships with families

“Teachers can move around. Parents and kids can change all the time, but your policies are what stand the test of time. If you embed in your policies really good practices around the health of the kids then you can move your whole community, all the kids, and future generations. The biggest service over many years to come.”
