Schroeder left in 1990 to become president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The Rockefeller Foundation dropped out of the program in 1992, and RWJF took its place.

Speech at UT-Houston School of Public Health

"Health Care's Tale: Progress and Calamity. Foundation president says promoting healthy behavior and covering the uninsured are major challenges," March 8, 1999. Raves Schroeder, "How can we change unhealthy lifestyles? By increasing research on behavioral science, which often comes in second to 'pure' science, and by translating what we know into action with a massive public awareness campaign." In other words, a massive health fascist dictatorship to tyrannize over every detail of our lives, all based on deliberately fraudulent and corrupt science - and all because Congress has let these parasites get away with their frauds, at the public's expense, for 60 years. And their health insurance schemes are nothing but another tool for manipulating and controlling our lives.
