Bernard Appiah, M.S., a doctoral student at the Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) School of Rural Public Health, has been selected for the 2013 Citizen News Service (CNS) Health Fellowship Program.
Appiah is a science journalist from Ghana with interest in using communication to address global health challenges.
Based in India, CNS awards annual fellowships to writers of health-related topics from low- and middle-income countries to encourage health reporting from the frontlines, increase news coverage and raise awareness on public health issues. This fellowship provides applicants with the opportunity to focus on neglected health priorities through additional training, mentor and peer support, and networking opportunities.
Selected fellows are expected to participate in a minimum of 10 out of 15 CNS issue cycles either via review of issue briefs, drafting of articles or conduction of interviews. Upon completion of the fellowship, candidates will be awarded a certificate recognizing their work with the CNS Health Fellowship Program.
