APHA- Public Health Fellowship in Government


The Fellowship in Government provides a unique public policy learning experience, demonstrates the value of science-government interaction and enhances public health science and practical knowledge in government. APHA is looking for candidates with strong public health credentials and an interest in serving as a staff person in the U.S. Congress. The fellowship is based in Washington, D.C.

The fellow will have the option of working in the House or Senate on legislative and policy issues such as creating healthy communities, improving health equity, addressing environmental health concerns, population health or the social determinants of health. Much of the work developing public policy happens at the staff level, where these critical issues are not well understood or incorporated into the discussion. The fellow will have the opportunity to make an impact and improve the health of the public.

The fellowship aims to:

  • Establish and nurture critical links between federal decision-makers and public health professionals;
  • Educate public health professionals about the legislative process and the skills necessary to be successful, including the ability to translate complex public health issues into legislative, regulatory and policy initiatives;
  • Increase the visibility and impact public health professionals in the policy arena;
  • Increase attention to and focus on the social determinants of health and the goal of improving health equity and creating healthy communities;
  • Support the inclusion of sound public health science in policy; and
  • Create a culture of policy engagement for public health professionals.

Deadline for the application is August 14th

Never thought I would see Fellow under my name

Many of the CEMCH Scholars attended this year’s meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA), held in Denver, October 29 – November 2. We will be posting their reflections and highlights this month.

By Lauren Biagioli, BS

For the 2016-2017 year I was selected as an APHA Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Section Student Fellow. Upon landing in Denver, my conference/fellow experience started from the get go! My introduction to the fellows program was an orientation before the conference began and it was the time I finally got to put faces to names. I got to meet the other fellows who all came from different backgrounds, schools and programs. After getting the rundown of the program and its requirements, we were sent off to start networking and conferencing.

As a Student Fellow, I was presented with many opportunities to meet some of the foremost leaders in the MCH field. I got to speak with Dr. Michael Lu, Associate Administrator of the HRSA Maternal and Child Health Bureau, and he even posed for a picture with us at a luncheon where we were honored. Although meeting some of the most influential people in field was an experience I will cherish, it was the connections I made that will allow me to put my education and knowledge to action. As a Student Fellow, I was assigned to a section committee with the intention of working closely with the chairs on current issues. I have the esteemed pleasure of serving on the Gun Violence Prevention committee under some remarkable professionals, to work on policy statements, opinion pieces, and other needed documents.

Although this journey as a Student Fellow has just started, I feel as though I am walking away from the annual meeting in Denver with purpose and with an action plan to work towards change on an issue I care about deeply. I can only hope that this opportunity will bring more positive relationships and open more doors for me as a young professional. I am honored to be an APHA MCH Student Fellow alongside other MCH hopefuls.


Lauren Biagioli is a second-year MPH Student, concentrating in Maternal and Child Health. She plans to graduate in the Fall of 2019 after completing her practicum experience in the Peace Corps. Her interests include policy and advocacy in areas such as child abuse, human sex trafficking, child marriage, victims of child pornography, and juvenile offenders. She also loves tennis, floral arranging, and attempting new recipes.
