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.

Application information is available at<www.psych.org/Resources/OMNA/MFP/jeannespurlockmdcongressionalfellowship.aspx> or from Marilyn King by phone at (703) 907-8653 or e-mail at mking@psych.org.▪
