Hannah Bartol, a health administration major in The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions, was selected for the National Indian Health Board's Health Policy Fellowship for 2020-21.
The fellows are a diverse group of talented young Native Americans dedicated to making a difference in their communities. They work with tribal leadership to identify a priority health Issue. Then, with the support of program mentors, they learn how to analyze policy in their issue area, make recommendations and advocate for change.
Bartol, from the Hannahville Indian Community near Escanaba, Michigan, will travel to Washington, D.C., to collaborate with advocacy organizations, congressional leaders, and key constituents related to Native American health care.
