In this new Global Health Studies initiative, leading advocates and practitioners working at local, national, transnational and global levels on diverse health issues from a justice/rights perspective are invited to Yale for short residences (1-4 weeks).
Advocates are selected based on a demonstrated commitment to health justice advocacy, as well as an interest in thoughtfully reflecting on their practices, successes, and challenges with students, faculty, and community members.
During their residencies, Advocates serve as teaching and mentoring resources to students through guest lectures, events/workshops, and individual meetings. They also contribute to interdisciplinary scholarship, projects, and advocacy efforts at Yale and with partnered institutions and community groups. Advocates have the opportunity to further their own interests, build connections with people and projects relevant to their work, and leverage the resources of being in a U.S. academic environment.
