CPH Policy Fellow applications now open

Published on July 6, 2018

CPH faculty — are you looking for an opportunity to expand your portfolio? Do you want to translate your research into action as you develop stakeholder interest in your work? If so, apply to be a CPH Policy Fellow!

The program is offered through the Iowa Institute of Public Health Research and Policy (IIPHRP), and it creates opportunities for primary faculty to enhance skills to translate public health research into practice and policy.

Faculty who desire additional opportunities to inform practice/policy change, who want to incorporate policy impact into their research portfolio, who aspire to lead activities such as convening a panel of experts or developing impact materials, and who want the opportunity to interact with stakeholders should apply for this year-long program. Individuals or teams of two or more faculty members are encouraged to apply.

Project proposals for the coming year are due August 16, 2018. To find out more about the application process, plan to attend one of two informational meetings.

The informational meetings  will be held at the following dates and times in N512 CPHB:

  • Tuesday, July 10 at 9-10 a.m.
  • Wednesday, July 11 at 2-3 p.m.
