Public Health Fellowship in Government Announced
The American Public Health Association has announced a call for applications for the 2017 APHA Public Health Fellowship in Government. This is the ninth year APHA is offering this fellowship, which provides a unique learning experience and demonstrates the value and need for basing policy on sound science.
Candidates must have strong public health credentials and be able to spend one year in Washington, D.C., beginning in January 2017. The fellow will have the option of working in the House or Senate on legislative and policy issues such as creating healthy communities, improving health equity, addressing environmental health concerns, population health or the social determinants of health.
Applications, additional information and brief articles from the previous fellows are available on APHA’s website. The application, including a CV and three letters of recommendation, is due to APHA by August 15, 2016.
