Public Health Post (PHP) informs and inflects the broader conversation on health and social justice by engaging policymakers, journalists, scholars, students, and public health professionals. PHP launched three years ago to educate and entertain readers and to influence health on a local, national, and global scale. PHP’s guest authors and graduate student fellows translate data and research into bite-sized, thought-provoking stories. We present health statistics, traditional journalism, research summaries, interviews with important health thinkers, and easy-to-understand data graphics to start new conversations about health.


What you will do as a PHP Fellow 2020-2021

  • research and write powerful stories on population health and social justice
  • profile leaders in health
  • publish 40+ articles in a year
  • drive the national dialogue on public health issues
  • participate in a startup culture with a diverse team of writers and editors
  • receive a $12,000 stipend (15 hours/week)
