Geiger Gibson Program Opportunities for PCA and Health Center Staff
The Geiger Gibson Program in Community Health Policy at the George Washington University in conjunction with NACHC is offering 2 exciting upcoming opportunities for health center and PCA staff. The program is currently accepting nominations for the following two programs, and encourage you to nominate your own staff:
Geiger Gibson Health Policy Fellows Program (Inaugural 2018 Fellows Class)
The Health Policy Fellows Program is designed to enable mid-level and senior health center and PCA staff to develop a deeper understanding of health policy and acquire key health policy analysis skills of value to their own organization’s policy advocacy efforts. Over a series of web-based sessions culminating in a four-day residential session in Washington, DC, the Fellows Program will provide rising health center and PCA leaders an immersive experience in federal health policy and policymaking, and will assist participants to develop basic health policy analysis competencies that will enable them to develop positions and engage in advocacy. Participants will be instructed by senior NACHC staff, faculty at the Milken Institute School of Public Health, Washington DC health policy experts, Geiger Gibson Distinguished Visitors, and congressional and agency staff. Apply now until December 31, 2017: bit.ly/healthpolicyfellows
