NACCHO is recruiting for two graduate students to join the 2019-2020 Health and Disability Fellowship Program.
This program offers an invaluable workforce development opportunity for graduate students seeking hands-on experience in the public health disability field. NACCHO trains the fellows to become leaders in promoting the health of people with disabilities through inclusive programming, products, and services.
