Long-time board member, Sarah Samuels, left an indelible mark on California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA). Sarah was a leader in conducting and applying research to shape sound nutrition policies. She was also a supportive mentor of new public health professionals. To honor these contributions and to continue her work, CFPA has established the Sarah Samuels Public Health Fellowship.
The application deadline for the summer 2015 fellowship has passed. Please check back for future openings.
