(1) Residential fellows work full-time in a nine-to-12-month placement (in the US Senate or House of Representatives, executive agencies, or 'think tank' organizations).
(2) Non-residential fellows remain in their current positions while working on a specific policy project which may involve brief placement(s) throughout the year at relevant sites.
Core program components focused on an extensive orientation and retreats on health, aging and legislative issues and processes, career development, mentorship and professional enrichment are provided for fellows in both tracks.
Previous fellows have been placed in the US Senate Finance Committee; the US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP); House Democratic Caucus; offices of individual Senators and Congresspersons; Department of Veterans Affairs; Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); US Department of Agriculture; Office of the HHS Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation; and Department of Transportation - working on a broad array of policy issues including the development and implementation of health care reform legislation.
The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program is a partner with the John Heinz Senate Fellowship in Issues of the Aging. Our programs have combined to create the joint John Heinz/Health and Aging Policy Fellowship. Each year, one individual will be designated the John Heinz/Health and Aging Policy Fellow.
We are also a partner with the Healthy Aging Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For the 2011-2012 fellowship year, the CDC is once again sponsoring a non-residential Health and Aging Policy Fellow. We seek your assistance in informing potential candidates of this opportunity. Please forward this notification to prospective applicants or others in the field who may know of such individuals, or to suggest other methods and/or venues for marketing the program.
The application deadline for the 2011-2012 fellowship year is May 20, 2011.
For further information, please visit our website at www.healthandagingpolicy.org or contact me or Phuong Huynh, Deputy Director of the program (email@example.com or 212-543-6213) directly.

| Role of Environmental Chemical Exposures in the Development of Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome (R01)
The Program Announcement, issued by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), encourages grant applications to understand the role of environmental chemical exposures in the development of obesity, type 2 diabetes and/or metabolic syndrome. Applications must link an environmental exposure to the increased incidence of weight gain, glucose tolerance/insulin sensitivity and aspects of metabolic syndrome in animal models or human studies. While any exposure window is acceptable it is anticipated that the most sensitive time for exposures to affect the disease outcomes will be during development e.g. in utero and/or neonatal or early childhood. For human studies developmental exposures (in utero and early childhood) should be linked to early biomarkers of disease onset. Animal studies should focus on identifying environmental chemicals that alter endpoints indicative of affecting disease development and the site and mechanism(s) of the effects that lead to the increased disease incidence.
