Liftoff PGH Follows up with Young Innovators Healthcare Fellowship
The Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) is hosting its first-ever summer fellowship for high school students in the Pittsburgh region to explore healthcare careers and design technology solutions for a current healthcare problem.
The Young Innovators Healthcare Fellowship will provide a collaborative and creative environment to gain entrepreneurial, solution-oriented thinking skills; engage with young professional mentors to learn about diverse careers in health; learn about the role of technology and innovation in rethinking health care; and collaborate with peers to design an innovative solution. The Fellowship, a new project of JHF, is a spin-off of Liftoff PGH 2020, JHF's health innovation initiative that convened leaders across Pittsburgh's technology, health, education, and entrepreneurship sectors for our region's first virtual healthcare innovation summit.
The Fellowship is planned to be virtual and will run for eight weeks – starting Thursday, June 17th, and concluding on Thursday, August 5th. Applications are now open with rolling admission. The fellowship is at no cost to students.
Students interested in physical and mental health STEM/STEAM, technology, and innovation, and those looking to boost their resume will also be able to highlight their participation in the fellowship with a certificate of completion.Applications due May 15. Apply here today!
