Villers Fellowship for Health Care Justice – Young adults take note!
December 14, 2012
Great lead just in from Families USA. Young people take note – this is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with health policy.
Do you know a young adult who is interested in health care justice and advocating for underprivileged groups through research and policy analysis? If so, please let them know about Families USA’s Villers Fellowship for Health Care Justice. The Villers Fellowship was created in 2005 by Philippe Villers, Families USA’s founder and president. The Villers Fellow will work in our health policy department, supporting the organization’s efforts to improve access to health coverage for all Americans, especially for low-income and other vulnerable constituencies. Their principle responsibility includes conducting primary and secondary research on a range of health care and health reform topics, as well as writing and contributing to publications that are relevant to current health reform issues. The Villers Fellow will work as a full-time policy analyst in our Washington, DC office. The ideal candidate will exhibit a keen interest in and commitment to advocating for underprivileged groups through research and policy analysis related to expanding access to coverage. They should also have an interest in national-level advocacy and developing an understanding of the United States’ health care system.
