The Jonas Salk Health Activist Fellowship is an incubator for emerging health activists who want to move from making noise to identifying strategies and tactics for sustainable change. During the 9-week program, the Fellows will form action groups, develop skills to shape winning strategies, and prepare to advocate effectively around the health issue about which they are passionate. In addition to learning how to change policies, practices, and perspectives, the Fellows will also take action during the Fellowship and have the opportunity to pitch their idea at the Health Activist Network Expo.
