Health Affairs December 7, 2023
In January 2022, Health Affairs created the Health Equity Fellowship for Trainees (HEFT) with the purpose of increasing the quantity and quality of manuscripts published on the topic of health equity, while cultivating future equity research leaders.
Applications are now open for the Fellowship program’s third cohort.
As we launch the 2024 application cycle, I am writing to share updates on modifications to HEFT, thoughts on successes we’ve had since our inaugural cohort, and expectations for the fellowship moving forward.
We hope Health Affairs will continue to lead in addressing health inequities in scholarly publishing by providing opportunities for our Fellows to gain insight into the publishing process by networking with journal editors and likeminded health policy scholars.
