July 20, 2021

Angie PeroneIncoming assistant professor Angie Perone was selected to the 2021-2022 class of RWJF Health Policy Fellows by the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF).

The fellows, who were selected for their accomplishments in health and behavioral/social science through a national competition for health professionals with an interest in policy, will spend a year in Washington, D.C. working on health-related legislative and regulatory issues with members of Congress and the executive branch. Their experiences in Washington will position them to examine how federal and state governments relate to the mission of their home institutions and local communities, and will enrich their understanding of the federal policy formation process. After an intensive three-month orientation, the fellows will then participate in a nine-month assignment in a congressional office or the executive branch, where they will be involved in health-related legislation and policy development.
