ASPPH Welcomes New Fellows!

ASPPH is pleased to welcome 16 new participants to our Fellowship Programs. Twelve new ASPPH Fellows began their assignments with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and four new ASPPH Fellows began their assignments with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation.)

Both these prestigious fellowship programs offer applied public health training opportunities for recent graduates of ASPPH member, Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)-Accredited schools and programs of public health. During the next one to two years, fellows will train under the guidance of mentors within their host federal agencies.

The ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program offers outstanding opportunities for early-career public health professionals by enabling them to train at EPA on high-priority environmental, public health issues.  ASPPH/EPA Fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts within the premier environmental health agency in the world. EPA leads the nation’s environmental science, research, education and assessment efforts, while working to protect our health and our environment.

The ASPPH/NHTSA Public Health Fellowship Program offers excellent training opportunities aimed to strengthen the public health workforce, as well as strengthen the linkages between public health, traffic safety, and injury prevention by providing opportunities for early-career public health professionals to acquire and practice the skills needed to perform essential public health services as they pertain to traffic safety specifically, and public health in general.  NHTSA promotes and implements effective educational, engineering, and enforcement programs to prevent injuries and deaths and reduce economic costs associated with motor vehicle crashes on the nation’s roadways.

During the last week, the new ASPPH Fellows participated in a variety of welcome and introduction sessions by ASPPH and their host agencies, in addition to skill-building trainings on developing goals and objectives, and understanding the legislative process.  The orientation program culminated with a tour of the U.S. Capitol.

ASPPH would like to thank our partners at both EPA and NHTSA for their continued support of these important public health workforce development programs.
