The JPB Environmental Health Fellowship Program

An innovative approach to support junior faculty at U.S. Institutions engaged in research on social and physical determinants of environmental health relevant to disadvantaged communities.

The JPB Environmental Health Fellowship Program has been developed to promote multidisciplinary research on how the social and physical environment interact to influence health and to look particularly at these determinants of health on disadvantaged communities. Recognizing the urgency of these issues and the need to train a new generation of scholars to conduct research and develop solutions, the JPB Environmental Health Fellowship Program will:

  • Advance junior faculty academic careers within their home institutions by providing a multidisciplinary training experience that will emphasize scholarship and leadership

  • Promote multidisciplinary collaborative research on the intersection of social and environmental health problems that affect disadvantaged communities

  • Create a cadre of research leaders committed to finding solutions to complex environmental health problems
