At ASF’s 4th Annual Fellows for Life (FFL) Conference this October, emerging and established professionals will gather to reaffirm, reinvigorate, and sharpen their commitment to meeting the health needs of underserved communities. (Register here.)
They’ll hear a powerful keynote address from Have Justice-Will Travel founder, CNN Hero, and Schweitzer Fellow Wynona Ward.
And, by participating in morning and afternoon breakout sessions, they’ll have the chance to engage in-depth with their peers on hot-button topics related to health disparities. Last year’s breakout sessions tackled pay-for-performance, the role of integrative medicine for the underserved, service learning, cross-cultural medicine, and global health — and now you have the chance to help determine the content of this year’s breakout sessions (which, due to popular demand, will be longer than last year’s).
“We are seeking proposals from current Fellows and Fellows for Life interested in facilitating a skills-based workshop, story session, or interest group at the FFL conference,” says ASF National Program Director Meghan Johnson, a Fellow for Life herself.

If you are interested in joining the breakout session proposal review committee, or would like to volunteer for conference planning, please contact Johnson at mjohnso9 at bidmc.harvard.edu.
