Jonas Salk Fellowship Fall 2015

Ph.D. student, Daniel Hurst, has been awarded the Jonas Salk Fellowship. The 2015 Salk Fellowship will consider solutions to major population health problems through four problem-solving lenses:

Social advocacy: Ignite a social movement around a positive vision
Crisis management: Mobilize a coordinated response with urgency
Predictive modeling: Target interventions and simulate the outcomes
Disruptive innovation: Create technology solutions

Using each of these problem-solving lenses, the Fellowship will propose solutions to serious and persistent health problems. The Fellows will work in teams to define their group's problem with guidance from a topic expert in the first session. Each subsequent session will focus on one of the problem-solving lenses and include a presentation by a community expert about the lens and then a group activity to apply it to the teams' problems. At the December 3rd finale, the Fellows will present proposals for each of the problems to help inform our community's action plan.
