Project SHINE Fellowship Orientation

CSTE, with CDC and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), recently welcomed Project SHINE fellows in Atlanta for orientation. Fellows from the Applied Public Health Informatics Fellowship (APHIF), Health Systems Integration Program (HSIP), the Informatics-Training in Place Program (I-TIPP) convened in Atlanta for a 5 day training and orientation. The 43 fellows working at state and local health departments include 12 APHIFs, 10 HSIPs, and 21 I-TIPPs. Among these fellows, three APHIFs and three HSIPs are completing a second year extension focused on population health.

The fellows learned with and from each other as they have diverse academic and professional experiences. APHIFs and HSIPs are new to their health departments while I-TIPPs are current health department employees. All fellows focus on population health improvement though projects rooted in community engagement, epidemiology, or informatics. The networks and connections the fellows build during orientation are essential to maintaining their relationships throughout the fellowship and their public health careers.

The orientation provided an opportunity for fellows to learn from experts about population health, surveillance, and informatics. Eric Kasowski MD, DVM, MPH, Chief of the Population Health Workforce Branch at CDC opened the week with a motivational keynote highlighting the Public Health 3.0 framework, CDC’s 6|18 initiative, and the Community Chief Health Strategist. Fellows participated in a variety of sessions through the week including: standards and interoperability, legalities of data use and collection, the politics of health inequity, and project management. The week ended with an inspirational closing keynote from Judy Monroe, MD, FAAFP, President of the CDC Foundation.

Congratulations to all of the new Project SHINE Fellows. We look forward to working with you during your fellowship!
