SALK19Ever wonder why the issue that you are passionate about hasn’t grabbed the public’s attention or transformed health care? Do you want to learn how to construct a winning strategy to mobilize action and influence policy?

The Salk Health Activist Fellowship helps emerging health activists learn how to grab the public’s attention on a major health and social issue and spur action. During the 9-week program (10 sessions), fellows will interact with some of the region’s foremost leaders to learn skills around casemaking, advocacy, and network building in order to develop appealing platforms and build public will.

Creative graduate students and young professionals from diverse healthcare related disciplines who are interested in reproductive health, health activism, political action, and nursing and midwifery. Nurses and midwives are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications for the 2021 Salk Health Activist Fellowship will open at the end of the summer.
