Pediatric Public Health Fellowship

Fellowship Summary

A tremendous lesson we have learned in Flint is that we need to have a competent and capable workforce to identify and tackle pediatric public health issues.

The fellow will complete an MPH (Master of Public Health) degree at MSU, and conduct research as part of the MSU-Hurley Pediatric Public Health Initiative.
