APA and the American Psychiatric Foundation invite nominations for the
Jeanne Spurlock Congressional Fellowship.
This fellowship provides all psychiatry residents, fellows, and early
career psychiatrists a unique opportunity to work in a congressional office on
federal health policy, particularly policy related to child and/or minority
issues. This fellowship was established in honor of the late Jeanne Spurlock,
M.D., who was deputy medical director of APA's Office of Minority/National
Affairs and an advocate for child and minority issues.
The recipient will serve a 10-month fellowship on Capitol Hill in
Washington, D.C., starting January 2, 2010. The fellow will be introduced to
the structure and development of federal and congressional health policy, with
a focus on mental health issues affecting minorities and underserved
populations, including children.
