A remarkable opportunity for career development is the program for Health and Aging Policy Fellowships. The program is interdisciplinary and past fellows have included lawyers, social workers, nurses, doctors, epidemiologists, economists, community activists, and -- of course -- academics, ranging in experience level from new degree-holders to experienced professionals. The year-long fellowships offer opportunities to engage in policy-making processes at state or federal levels, whether in "residentIal" or nonresidential settings,
Applications are due in mid-April each year -- and planning ahead helps for both the application and the award year. Eligibility criteria, funding details, and a subscription link for future deadlines and program opportunities are available on the program's website. A great opportunity for sabbatical work?
