The Wellstone Fellowship for Social Justice

The Wellstone Fellow plays an integral role in the work of  Families USA's Minority Health Initiatives Department. The Wellstone Fellow's primary responsibilities include assisting in the organization of training for community leaders and journalists; drafting policy briefs, fact sheets, and other publications; and developing content for the minority health pages of the Families USA Web site and for the department's monthly e-newsletter. During the year, the Fellow will learn about Medicare, Medicaid, efforts to achieve universal coverage, minority health, and other health policy issues. The Fellow will also learn about conducting health care campaigns through communication and collaboration with our network of state grassroots advocates and organizations. For more information, visit the Wellstone Fellowship's website.

The Fellowship will last one year, from August 2009 through July 2010, and include an annual salary of $35,000 and excellent health care benefits.
