The HERE Fellows Program empowers the next generation or rural health leaders from across Northern New England to address critical health challenges in rural communities. The HERE Fellows Program will launch in the Fall of 2020 with our inaugural cohort of undergraduate students.

HERE Fellows will benefit from training and experience in community-engaged research and action, seminars with rural health leaders, and interactions with a network of mentors and peers committed to rural health equity. The 2020-21 HERE Fellowship will include a combination of online and in-person learning. The HERE Fellows program is embedded within a network of academic, health systems, and community partners that includes Colby-Sawyer College, Dartmouth College, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health.

• Program Retreat
