This fall, join the Salk Health Activist Fellowship and learn how to build a movement, including how to: form an action group, advocate effectively, plan winning strategies, and build a case for action.


Salk Health Activist Fellowship

The Jonas Salk Health Activist Fellowship is an incubator for emerging health activists who want to move from making noise to identifying strategies and tactics for sustainable change. During the 9-week program (10 sessions), you will form action groups, develop skills to shape winning strategies, and prepare to advocate effectively around the health issue about which you are passionate. In addition to learning how to change policies, practices, and perspectives, you will also take action during the Fellowship and have the opportunity to pitch your idea at the Health Activist Expo!
