Notice to Readers: Knight Journalism Fellowships Offered at CDC

The CDC Foundation is accepting applications for the Knight Journalism Fellowships. The Knight Fellowships at CDC provides journalists a closer look at the practice of public health and combines a general curriculum with specialized content that reflects the individual interests of each fellow. Examples of activities include the following:

Disease investigation: Each fellow accompanies an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Officer on an investigation of an outbreak of disease and serves as a team member in designing questionnaires, conducting surveys, analyzing data, and determining causes of outbreaks.

Scientific research: Knight fellows are matched with scientists conducting research on specific diseases or threats to public health. Fellows can participate in one or more stages of research projects. Fellows also might contribute to the writing or editing of an article for MMWR or other scientific journals.

Field practice: Activities include working in the field with public health officials, examining how priorities are set in a public health agency, and contributing to a health area of interest to fellows. Local experience will help fellows gain a better understanding of the partnership among state, local, and federal agencies and community-based organizations.

Interaction with colleagues: Time will be allowed for fellows to interact with each other and to share ideas and experiences. Fellows also will attend a series of colloquia featuring nationally recognized experts in public health.

In 2003, nine journalists will be selected as Knight Journalism Fellows at CDC. Duration of the fellowship program is June 16--September 30, 2003. A $5,000 per month stipend is provided. Application deadline is February 20, 2003. Additional information and applications are available from the CDC Foundation at
