Climate Health Organizing Fellows Program
This program is open to any U.S. based health professional (physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, social workers, physician assistants, psychologists) who provides direct patient care and to community partners working with health professionals (public health professionals, non profit leaders, environmental justice advocates). Applications should be submitted by groups of 3 people who are already working together on climate projects. Each group should include either 3 health professionals or 2 health professionals and 1 community partner (public health professional, non profit leader, environmental justice advocate, etc). Health professionals at any stage of their career (including trainees and retirees) are invited to apply. There will be 1 application per group. Applying as a group enables home organizations to develop a larger cadre of individuals trained in community organizing and will allow greater impact on their projects. Working with a community partner gives the health professionals an opportunity to more deeply connect with community initiatives.If you are requesting to apply as a group larger than three, please contact Chrissie Connors at firstname.lastname@example.org
