About Rob Restuccia

Rob Restuccia was Community Catalyst’s founding executive director and a trailblazing leader in the health advocacy movement. His life’s work and commitment to rooting out injustice involved activism as a student at Harvard, work as an orderly in a public hospital, union organizing, and his role as a visionary state health care advocate, and national leader. He was an outstanding team builder, collaborator, and made those around him better. Before his death, Rob envisioned this Fellowship program with some of his family, friends, and closest professional colleagues.
