After a comprehensive review of submitted applications by PAEA’s Government Relations Steering Committee, we are proud to announce the 2019–2020 Student Health Policy Fellowship class. The 14 selected students, composing the sixth cohort of the fellowship, will participate in a seminar, in early September, designed to bolster their advocacy skills, develop their appreciation for the value of PA leadership, and facilitate meaningful engagement with their elected representatives.
Following the event, each fellow will be tasked with planning and executing a community-based advocacy project using the skills gained during the in-person meeting. This component of the fellowship experience is designed to encourage a long-term commitment to advocacy on behalf of PA education and practice. Previous projects have included visits to programs by members of Congress, presentations to students considering a career as a PA, and state advocacy days to advocate for the unique policy priorities of state chapters.
On behalf of PAEA’s Government Relations team, congratulations to the 2019-20 fellows!
