What is the Healthy Communities Fellowhip?

Using the Aspen Global Innovators vast experience and expertise in communications and influential mainstream platform, we provide communications and storytelling trainings to leaders who are building healthy communities and are frontline innovators. By connecting these leaders to our platforms and leveraging our access to media outlets, their voices will reach mainstream audience. Armed with their stories and new skills, they will be better equipped to write op-eds, speak on panels and reach new supporters to grow their leadership and innovations.Fellows will amplify their messages, stories and expertise to leading experts, frontline health workers, innovators, and policymakers to address key issues in cultivating healthy communities.
