MC-PHLFP The CDC Public Health Leader Fellowship Program at Morehouse College is a rigorous 10-week summer program designed to prepare underrepresented undergraduate students for leadership roles in the field of public health. A principal aim of the program is reducing health disparities. The program includes 2 weeks of public health educational training at Morehouse College with didactic learning in topics that include introduction to public health, introduction to biostatistics, introduction to epidemiology, scientific writing, and international health. Students also receive 3 days of training at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) headquarters in Atlanta. During the final 8 weeks of the program, each student is paired with a mentor to conduct a hands-on research project within CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. Throughout the duration of the internship, students participate in weekly forums with opportunities for learning about public health leadership challenges faced by accomplished guest lecturers with experience across a broad range of sectors. Students also receive weekly coaching support and participate in a leadership skills webinar series. The content of this leadership curriculum is based on the following public health leadership competencies: public health leadership principles; collaboration and partnerships; articulating mission and vision; dialogue; team building; developing collaborative relationships to achieve goals; applying social justice principles; motivating others; and demonstrating transparency, integrity, and honesty in all actions. Project Imhotep An intense 11-week summer internship program designed to train undergraduate juniors, seniors, and recent graduates in the public health sciences. Project Imhotep enhances the education and experiences of students by using a well-integrated public health curriculum that emphasizes the concepts and constructs of public health. This program also begins with 2 weeks of intense educational training, followed by 8 weeks of practical hands-on experience, an oral presentation, poster presentation, and submission of a written manuscript suitable for publication in a scientific journal.

In the United States, October 12th is known as Columbus Day. Many Latin American communities in the U.S. celebrate this day under the name El Día de la Raza. However, in recent years, some states and cities have decided to celebrate Indigenous People's Day instead of Columbus Day. So Happy Indigenous People’s Day to all!

Roughly 40 million adults in the U.S. struggle with depression or anxiety. Not to mention the family, friends, and coworkers that are also impacted. National Depression Screening Day is held annually on October 8. It’s important for many reasons. First, it can help people make an informed diagnosis. It also drags depression out of the darkness. And perhaps most important, it can bring help to those that need it. #MentalHealthAwareness #MentalHealth #Depression #GetScreened

CDC Intern and Fellowship Programs in Minority Health

Dear potential CDC Undergraduate Public Health Scholars Program (CUPS)/Ferguson interns,

In an effort to remain transparent, the Public Health Sciences Institute (PHSI) is providing an update about Morehouse College’s novel coronavirus (COVID-19) response and this summer’s Project Imhotep Program Public Health Leadership Program. As CDC leads the national response for COVID-19, CDC’s Office of Minority Health and Health Equity (OMHHE) and CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) continues to closely monitor these events with your health and safety as our foremost concern. In consultation with their grant recipients, OMHHE and NCHHSTP has decided to suspend the Project Imhotep and Public Health Leadership Program (PHLFP) activities for the summer of 2020. Given the impact of the pandemic nationally and its effects on communities and colleges, the decision to suspend is in line with national public safety protocols.

Best Wishes,

The Public Health Sciences Institute
