CCPH Fellows Named for 2002/2003
June 5, 2002
The CCPH Fellows program, funded with generous support from the Helene Fuld Health Trust, HSBC Trustee (, and the Corporation for National and Community Service (, provides support to community based professionals, academic administrators, and faculty with significant knowledge and expertise in building and sustaining service-learning, community based participatory research, and community-campus partnerships. Selected from an impressive pool of over 130 applicants, the fifteen CCPH Fellows will work to advance these concepts in the context of health professions education and practice. CCPH Fellows serve as leaders in a wide variety of ways including:
-Serving as spokespersons within their field and/or discipline (i.e. working on relevant committees, presenting at national and regional conferences, writing articles for association journals or newsletter, mentoring junior colleagues, etc.)
-Serving as members of a "think tank" that advises CCPH staff and members on principles and best practices in their field and/or discipline.
-Serving as trainers and consultants to academic administrators, faculty, students and community based professionals through the CCPH Mentor Network, the CCPH Annual Conference and Service-Learning Institutes, and within their own campus, community, and region.
