Stanford Health 4 America kicks off

The Stanford Prevention Research Center has launched a new professional certificate program in preventive medicine, called the Stanford Health 4 America Fellows Program, and its first informational program will be held here tomorrow.

The nine-month program will teach college graduates the science of preventive medicine though a combination of coursework and hands-on experience in an internship with a partner organization in the community. Some examples of partner organizations are schools, race and ethnicity-based centers and senior centers.

The center is accepting applications for the Jan-Sept. 2014 cohort from anyone with a college degree and an interest in preventive medicine. The cost of the program is $20,000, and fellowships are available to assist students with this cost. Applications are being accepted now though Oct. 21.

Potential applicants in the area are encouraged to attend an information session tomorrow, Sept. 18, at 5 PM at the Hoover Pavilion or on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 5 PM in the Medical School Office Building. Please visit the program's website to RSVP for the sessions.

For additional details, contact program associate TO Preising at preising@stanford.edu.

Holly MacCormick is a writing intern in the medical school’s Office of Communication & Public Affairs. She is a graduate student in ecology and evolutionary biology at University of California-Santa Cruz.
