The Bloomberg Fellows Program is a unique program within the Bloomberg American Health Initiative. The fellowship program is impact-based, and targets individuals engaged with organizations around the country. These change agents are working to make a difference in their communities in one or more of our five focus areas: addiction and overdose, adolescent health, environmental challenges, obesity and the food system, and violence. Bloomberg Fellows receive a full scholarship to earn a master of public health or a doctor of public health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
In this episode, we’ll talk to Initiative team members Faria Zaman, our fellowship officer, and Shane Bryan, our partnership engagement officer.
We’ll also be joined by:
- Bloomberg graduate Maia Gibbons, with Youth Empowered Society in Baltimore, MD
- current Bloomberg Fellow Thaddeus Pham, with the Hawaii Department of Health in Honolulu, Hawaii
- Sarah Lester, director of the Maplewood Memorial Library in Maplewood New Jersey
Our guests will share the opportunities that exist within the fellowship program, talk about what their experiences have been like since becoming a fellow and a recent graduate, and what it’s like as a collaborating organization.
