Neighborhood Health Leaders Fellowship

Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, CARE will offer a leadership program for students, faculty, and New Haven residents to work together on solutions to pressing social and health issues identified by the community. The program will be open to faculty and graduate students in the School of Health and Human Services; and it will be open to residents of the Dixwell and Newhallville and West Rock and West Hills neighborhoods. Two cohorts will be funded in the 2017-18 academic year.
Students fellows will co-learn with faculty and residents about Community-Based Participatory Research and community organizing methods. Students will work alongside the resident partners to build relationships with other neighborhood leaders and residents and community organizations.  Overseen by a faculty member, students will help build health activities and initiatives with community residents, conduct outreach about neighborhood-level projects and other CARE-related projects, and assist with research-related activities.
