Civic Health Fellowship
Why should I take this course?
We’ve heard from past fellows that this program has connected them to the community of like-minded professionals that they’ve long sought.
Plus, you’ll leave the course with:
- Deeper knowledge of health disparities and medical racism—and how we can fight against it in our daily work
- Insights into what obstacles affect voter engagement and how to address them
- A richer understanding of the relationship between health outcomes and democratic participation
- Practical community organizing skills to mobilize colleagues and leaders at your institution or school
- Lots of laughs, inside jokes, and most importantly: a network of passionate, like-minded healthcare professionals who, like you, are committed to making a bigger impact in their community
Who teaches this course?
Nobel Peace Prize-nominated activist Srdja Popovic and health organizing leader Pedja Stojicic teach the course, along with a group of all-star guest speakers.
I have another question that isn't answered here.
How do I apply for financial aid?
You can indicate on your application that you need financial assistance. Last year we didn’t turn anyone away because of the cost, and we expect that everyone who needs help will receive an appropriate discount.
If you have additional questions about financial assistance, please email Leah Ford, Vot-ER Organizing Director, at email@example.com
Do I need to have organizing experience?
Nope! Just come ready to learn and collaborate.
