Purpose

The Wellstone Fellow’s primary responsibilities include assisting in the organization of conferences and trainings for advocates, community leaders, and journalists; drafting talking points, blogs, policy briefs, fact sheets, and other publications; and developing content for the Families USA website and email lists.

During the year, the Fellow will learn about health reform implementation, minority health, Medicaid, Medicare, and other important health policy issues. At the same time, the Wellstone Fellow will develop an understanding of the tactics and strategies used in state-based consumer health advocacy organizations and will work directly with our network of state consumer health advocates and organizations.

Eligibility

The Wellstone Fellowship is designed to increase the number of low-income, American Indian & Alaska Native, Asian American, Black/African American, Latino, and Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander social justice leaders. Candidates seeking consideration for the Wellstone Fellowship must demonstrate an interest in using organizing and advocacy skills to achieve health care justice and social change.
