The American Public Health Association (APHA) is now accepting applications for the Public Health Fellowship in Government.
The fellowship provides a unique learning experience and demonstrates the value and need for basing policy on sound science. 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.
The fellowship is open to all APHA members who are public health professionals. Candidates must have a graduate degree in public health or related discipline and have at least five years of experience as a public health professional beyond graduate or medical training. All candidates must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The fellowship is based in Washington, D.C. and runs from January through December 2018. Applications are due by August 14, 2017.
