2 October, 2020

Dear All

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity program for 2021! The aim of the fellowship is to develop leaders who understand the foundations of health inequity and have the knowledge, skills, and courage to build more equitable health systems and organizations.

Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity is a one year fellowship opportunity designed for early to mid-career leaders who are currently engaged in health sector work including, but not limited to, academia, government, healthcare delivery, the arts, equitable housing, business, research, and media. The program will select twenty fellows. Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity is one of seven global, interconnected Atlantic Fellows programs. While each of the seven Atlantic Fellows programs is distinct and grounded in its local context, they share a common purpose of advancing fairer, healthier, more inclusive societies.

The Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity program is designed to bring together the diverse industries, professions and leaders that influence health and well-being. There are no specific educational requirements or ‘preferred’ professions - we are a community united by values. The shared attributes and values of the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity include solutions orientation, equity, inclusivity, courage, humility, diversity, and creativity. If you share these values, we encourage you to apply!

More information about the program can also be found in the attached flyer and on our website, https://healthequity.atlanticfellows.org/.

Please feel free to contact us with any inquiries.

Sincerely,

Seble
