ANHE Environmental Health Nurse Fellowship: 2019-2020 Cohort
In June 2019, the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments (ANHE) launched the first of its kind Environmental Health Nurse Fellowship program to train nurses to work with communities in tackling serious environmental health threats, including toxic chemical pollution, water contamination, climate disruption and related health impacts, and more. Funded by the Kresge Foundation, the program has a particular focus on environmental health equity and justice and addressing the disproportionate impact of environmental exposures on vulnerable groups. Paired with expert environmental health nurse mentors, the fellows will conduct projects in their communities to address a community-identified environmental health need and build support for community-driven solutions. In addition, the fellows will work to educate health professionals and colleagues in their communities about environmental health, in order to expand knowledge and engagement of health professionals on critical environmental health issues. ANHE fellows and mentor are grouped by the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s ten regions.
