The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Environmental Health, is accepting applications for the 2016-2017 Environmental Public Health Tracking: Peer-to-Peer Fellowship Program. Designed to enhance capacity of local, state and territorial health departments not currently funded as part of CDC’s National Tracking Network, ASTHO will select up to four state, territorial or local health agencies for this fellowship. Participants will have the the opportunity to:
- Gain one-on-one, in-depth mentorship from a current Tracking Program grantee;
- Learn key tracking techniques and IT infrastructure that can be modeled around the needs and environmental challenges specific to the fellow’s state;
- Build peer networks across state and territorial health agencies; and
- Be part of the national tracking conversation.
Applications can be downloaded here, and must be emailed to Samantha Williams by September 9, 2016, no later than 5:00 PM ET.
