Fellows’ projects often address the social determinants of health, and their activities frequently include tutoring, violence prevention, health education, healthy lifestyles promotion, and outreach to vulnerable and marginalized groups. Our “Fellows for Life” alumni program supports our graduates’ further development as leaders in service, and provides them with continuing networking, skill-building and community service opportunities.
