2017 Jonas Salk Fellowship: One of the Feinstein Fellowships

The Salk Health Activist Fellowship is an incubator for emerging health activists who want to move from “noise to strategy and tactics.” During the 11-week program, the Fellows will form an action group and develop skills to build a case for action, shape winning strategies, and advocate effectively around a health issue about which they are passionate. In addition to learning how to change policies, practices, and perspectives, the Fellows will also take action during the Fellowship with some microfunding and experienced community activists as they start to implement their strategy. Whether you’re currently working on a health problem or have yet to be activated, this fellowship is for you!

Session Dates, Times, and Location
The Fellowship will occur on the following dates from 4:30pm to 7:30pm (dinner included) at the QI2T Center (650 Smithfield St., Suite 2600, Pittsburgh, PA, 15222) and select locations in the Pittsburgh community: 9/19, 9/26, 10/3, 10/10, 10/17, 10/24, 10/31, and 11/30. All of these dates are Tuesdays, except for the finale on 11/30, which is a Thursday.

In between 10/31 and the finale on 11/30, the Fellows will work with experienced community organizers and activists to start to implement part of their campaign strategy.
