Growing the Next Generation of Indian Health Advocates
The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) Health Policy Fellowship is a year-long program for Native youth 18-24 years old who are interested in making a difference in the health of their communities.
Health Policy Fellows:
- Work with Tribal leadership to identify one priority health issue
- Learn how to analyze policy in their issue area
- Create informed recommendations, and
- Advocate for change
Opportunities to Grow
Health Policy Fellows meet in-person 3 times and receive virtual trainings to strengthen their leadership skills and ability to effectively advocate for their communities.
NIHB covers Fellows’ travel for all in-person meetings. We also provide free opportunities for professional development to current and past Fellows.
