The sixth cohort of the Public Health Fellowship was the largest thus far. During the sixth annual Public Health Symposium, the Fellows engaged in panel discussions about their projects, each of which spans a diverse array of scholarly, programmatic, and policy-based examples of work in the area of public health. Fellows were joined in panel discussions moderated by Dr. Jocelyn Apicello, BPI’s Public Health/Urban Farming & Sustainability Faculty & Academic Advisor, and Dr. Bob Fullilove, Senior Advisor to BPI’s Public Health Program.
The BPI Public Health Fellowship is dedicated to addressing the underrepresentation of justice-system-involved professionals in crafting life-determining public health policy and programs. The 2021-22 Public Health Fellowship cohort also included two Fellows who are not BPI alumni, a result of the growing reach of BPI’s public health programs and partnerships in the field.
