NIHB Public Health Summer Fellowship

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) believes in the importance of building the public health workforce, where American Indians and Alaska Natives have the capacity to address the health needs of their own communities.

Committed to this goal, NIHB has partnered with the Morehouse School of Medicine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Emory University Rollins School of Public Health and the Minority Health Professions Foundation to implement the NIHB Public Health Summer Fellowship Program for American Indian and Alaska Native students.

NIHB would like to reach a large number of interested candidates and we need your help. Please encourage promising young college students or recent college graduates to apply for the fellowship!
