Foundation Focus
I'm pleased to welcome David Krol, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.A.P., as senior program officer and team
director of the Human Capital Portfolio. Not only does he bring outstanding clinical and research
credentials to the post, but he has been a tireless leader in the areas of health advocacy, policy and
practice. As a formerRobert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholar, he also brings the grantee
perspective to the job.
David has been a devoted advocate for children's oral health, focusing on the interface between
dentistry and primary care pediatrics. He has provided pediatric primary care to the underserved in
Connecticut, Ohio and New York; published in scientific journals on children's oral health and health
workforce policy, among other topics; and testified on children's behalf before numerous legislative
bodies.
As a 2002-2004 recipient of a Soros Advocacy Fellowship for Physicians, David partnered with the
Children's Dental Health Projectin Washington, D.C. This endeavor gave prominence to child oral
health in the pediatric community. It also improved oral-health treatment skills among pediatricians
and other non-dental health professionals and advocated for increasing the level of oral-health
education in medical schools. It's no surprise, then, that David was named a Pediatric Leader of the
21st Century by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Johnson & Johnson Pediatric Institute.
He received his Masters of Public Health from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public
Health, and was a Bush Fellow in Child Development and Social Policy at Yale University. His
pediatric training took place at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.
David is also a former professional baseball player with the Minnesota Twins. As a college player, he

Research Roundup
Health & Society Scholars
Kate Strully, Ph.D., ('07), published an article in the May 2009 issue of the Journal of
Demography.Job Loss and Health in the U.S. Labor Market states that job loss caused through
no fault of one's own, such as an establishment closure, increases one's risk of developing a new
health problem. Even when people find a new job quickly, there is an increased risk of developing a
new health problem such as hypertension, heart disease, heart attack, stroke or diabetes as a result
of the job loss. Strully's study received media coverage in the New York Times, USA Today,
Time, CNN, and ABC News,among others.
