Congratulations to Meredith Curtis, a dual MD-MPH student, for being chosen as an APHA Maternal Child Health Fellowship for 2013-14. Meredith will serve a one year term as an APHA-MCH fellow. The Student Fellows Program is an exciting and unique opportunity for students to learn more about the MCH field and to be actively engaged in the activities of the MCH Section. Each Student Fellow will have an opportunity to learn more about APHA and the MCH Section by participating in business meetings, serving on various Section committees, and working on Section policy statements among other activities. Additionally, Student Fellows will be matched with a public health mentor in the MCH field who is serving in a leadership role in the APHA MCH Section.
The overall goal of the Student Fellows Program is to foster the development of leaders in science, program, and policy related to the health of women, children, and their families. The fellowship is designed to provide student fellows an opportunity to enrich their professional experience by participating in professional education and policy development at a national level.
