APHA's Public Health Association

January 2011

Dear Friend of Public Health:

On behalf of the American Public Health Association (APHA), it is my pleasure to announce the call for applications for the 2012 APHA Public Health Fellowship in Government.   This is fifth year that APHA is offering this fellowship which has been described as an “amazing” and “phenomenal” experience by previous fellows.

Candidates must have strong public health credentials and be interested in spending one year in Washington, D.C. working in a congressional office on legislative and policy issues related to health, the environment or other public health concerns. 

The fellowship will begin in January 2012 and continue through December 2012. The fellowship provides a unique learning experience for a public health professional to gain practical knowledge in government and see how the legislative and public policy process works. 

Applications and additional information are available at  Hard copies of the application, including a CV and three letters of recommendation, are due to APHA by April 4, 2011.  

All candidates:

  1. must be APHA members (membership information)
  2. must have five years or more experience in a public health setting. Internships, graduate assistantships and residencies do not count toward the five year requirement
  3. must have a Masters degree or doctorate in a public health or related discipline 

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