NACCHO is seeking applications for two paid graduate-level fellowships to work as a part of the Health and Disability Project. Topic areas for the fellowship may include but are not limited to inclusion in emergency planning and preparedness and obesity prevention and reduction.
Fellows will work closely with NACCHO staff and will also:
1. Receive guidance on development and execution of project deliverables;
2. Be introduced to local-, state-, and national-level disability and health partners through meetings and conferences; and
3. Be evaluated on their awareness and knowledge of health and disability issues through administration of a pre- and post-assessment.
Graduate students (Masters or PhD students) in public health, health education, or related field preferred, especially students with a background or interest in disability/disability studies. Students currently in school and who recently completed school will be considered. Students with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
