The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) is accepting applications for the 2018-19 Environmental Public Health Tracking: Tracking Mentoring Fellowship Program. They are seeking proposals from unfunded local public health agencies to work with a tracking program grantee on an environmental health project that utilizes tracking data. Intended to increase capacity at non-funded local public health agencies, the fellowship will provide an opportunity to an unfunded local health department to:
- Participate in a one-on-one mentorship with a current Tracking Program grantee;
- Devise and implement an environmental health project that uses tracking data to address an environmental health issue, under the guidance of the grantee tracking program;
- Learn key data utilization techniques to identify and characterize health effects, exposures, and hazards; and
- Develop a programmatic understanding of the tracking techniques and IT infrastructure that can be modeled around the needs and challenges of the region.
