The third cohort of ten fellows includes advocates for maternal health, mental health, mitigating provider burnout, public health prevention, promotion of healthy families, and combating of racism. They will participate in a year-long program designed to sharpen and amplify their messages through public speaking, writing, and networking. This initiative is supported by the Johnson and Johnson Foundation as part of their effort to help build resilient community-based health systems with thriving frontline health workers.
