Community Health Scholars Post-Doctoral Program

The Community Health Scholars Program (CHSP)is a post-doctoral fellowship designed to meet the growing needs of schools of public health for faculty with community competency. The goal of the Community Health Scholars Program is to increase the number of faculty at health professional schools, with an emphasis on schools of public health, who possess the capacity to work in diverse communities to carry out community-based participatory research and teaching and who understand determinants of community health and how to build the capacity of communities, health-related agencies and academic centers to function as equal partners in community-based research, service and education. By supporting this program, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation continues to focus on the development of knowledge, skills and values in community-basd approaches to public health. The CHSP builds on the Foundation's Initiatives: Community-Based Public Health, Turning Point: Collaborating for a New Century of Public Health, and Community Voices: Health Care for the Underserved. Program alumni will describe their projects, findings, and lessons learned through their participation in the post-doctoral program
