    Spend a year in D.C. working in the House or Senate on public health issues.

    Deadline is Sept. 4, 6:00 p.m. ET

    On behalf of the American Public Health Association, I am thrilled to announce the call for applications for the 2019 APHA Public Health Fellowship in Government. This is the 10th year APHA is offering this fellowship, which previous fellows have described as an “amazing,” “phenomenal” and “life altering” experience. The fellowship provides a unique learning opportunity 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.  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.

    Training for the fellowship will begin in January 2019 so you must be able to move to the Washington, D.C., area in January. Throughout the year, the fellow will gain a practical knowledge of government and how the public policy process works.

    Fellowship candidates must:

    1. be an APHA member;
    2. have a graduate degree in public health or a related discipline;
    3. have at least five years’ experience as a public health professional beyond graduate or medical training (internships, graduate assistantships and residencies do not count);
    4. be a citizen of the U.S. or its territories or have permanent residence status in the U.S.; and
    5. not be a federal employee.

    Candidates who do not meet all of the above criteria will not be considered.

    Additional information, including the application form and brief articles from the previous fellows, is available on APHA’s website. The completed application, CV and three letters of recommendation are due to APHA by 6 p.m. EDT on Sept. 4, 2018.

    Please forward this email to anyone you believe may be eligible and interested. For more information, feel free to contact us at or 202-777-2510.

    The Minnesota Stroke Association annual Strides for Stroke even exemplifies the notion of an active stroke community. Not only does it allow us to honor stroke survivors and walk in solidarity with one another, it also raises stroke awareness and helps fund programs that benefit Minnesotans who live with the effects of stroke. Strides for Stroke demonstrates that stroke is not an ending. The hundreds of people walking together for a common cause is a beautiful picture of the power of community and the possibilities it represents - for survivors, their families and the people around them.

    The 2018 Strides for Stroke will take place on Saturday, May 19 in Duluth, Saint Cloud and the Twin Cities.
