On September 1, 2016, SHLI welcomed its 8th cohort of Health Policy Leadership Fellows to Morehouse School of Medicine. These remarkable health professionals join the ranks of 30 program graduates committed to leadership in reducing health disparities and advancing health equity.
The Health Policy Leadership Fellowship Program, established in 2009, is a 10-month multidisciplinary training program designed to provide physicians and postdoctoral professionals with the specific knowledge, skills, and experiences to prepare them for leadership roles promoting and implementing policies and practices to reduce disparities and advance health equity. The fellowship’s major focus areas include leadership development, health policy, and health equity, with concentrations in both behavioral and sexual health.
