1995 -1996 Fellowship in
Health and Social Justice
The Institute for Health and Social Justice announces a Fellowship position
for candidates interested in the health problems of impoverished communities
in the United States and developing countries. The Fellowship in Health and
Social Justice is a one-year position to be spent at the Institute and its
affiliated departments at Harvard University (the Department of Social
Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, and the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud
Center for Health and Human Rights at the Harvard School of Public Health).
The central theme for the 1995-96 Fellowship year will be:
The New World Order and the Health of the Poor.
Faculty for 1995-96 include:
Noam Chomsky, John Gershman, Nancy Krieger, David Sanders, David Werner.
The Fellow will participate in relevant seminars and lectures at Harvard
Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health, and will be trained
in both the academic analysis of health problems in poor communities and the
practical development and implementation of community-based solutions to
these problems. The fellowship will run from September 1, 1995 to August 31,
The Fellowship in Health and Social Justice revolves around the concept of
scholars in service to the community, and will offer a valuable addition to
the conventional training of scholars in the fields of medicine,
health-related social sciences and public health. Fellows will receive
unique training in both analysis - by exploring from the perspective of poor
communities the health impact of developmental "aid" programs, and how those
programs come to be established; and practice - by working with a
community-based organization that serves the poor.
Eligibility: Minimum selection criteria include:
