Are you a prospective student to the MPH or DrPH program? Do you work in one of these focal areas: addiction and overdose, environmental challenges, obesity and the food system, risks to adolescent health or violence? If you answered yes to both these questions, you could be a potential applicant to the Bloomberg Fellows program.

The Bloomberg Fellows program partners with students and a sponsoring organization to train world-class public health leaders engaged in the focal areas listed in the second question above. The fellowship pays tuition and fees for the fellows. Following graduation fellows are required to work for at least one year at the organization they applied with to the program.

The Bloomberg American Health Initiative is hosting webinars over the next two months based on the five focal areas of the initiative. This is a great opportunity for prospective fellows to learn more about the research being done at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health as well as the Bloomberg Fellowship. The schedule is as follows:

Risks to Adolescent Health: August 15, 2018, 1:00 p.m. EST
Violence: September 12, 2018, 2:00 p.m. EST
Addiction & Overdose: September 19, 2018, 1:00 p.m. EST
Environmental Challenges: September 26, 2018, 1:00 p.m. EST
Obesity & Food Systems: October 10, 2018, 1:00 p.m. EST
