I've got good news to announce! I have been awarded a Maternal and Child Health Leadership Traineeship through my school of public health! These training grants are distributed by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, part of the federal agency HRSA.
As part of my MCH leadership training I will be required to attend specialized seminars on various MCH leadership competencies, receive individualized mentoring from both a faculty member and a member of a community organization, and attend research-to-practice seminars.
This is very exciting news for me because it will help me get a foot into the MCH public health community here in my area, get involved in MCH research, and also provide a tuition waiver to help me with my education! The traineeship also provides travel support to conferences and a stipend.
If you are interested in pursuing this same traineeship at your own college of public health, visit the funded projects page on the MCHB website and search for your school!
