Applications now being accepted for Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program


Applications are being accepted through April 16 for the Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program. The program is an opportunity for professionals in health and aging to receive the experience and skills necessary to make a positive contribution to the development and implementation of health policies that affect older Americans. Organizers said that one of today’s greatest policy challenges is how to ensure that the U.S. health care system can meet the needs of a rapidly aging population. The goal of the Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program is to provide professionals in health and aging with the experience and skills necessary to help lead this effort, and in so doing, shape a healthy and productive future for older adults.
