What is the Health and Aging Policy Fellows program and why did you choose to get involved? The Health and Aging Policy Fellowship is a program that provides opportunities to professionals in the health and aging arena to develop and implement policies that affect older Americans. It is supported by the Atlantic Philanthropies and the Hartford foundation. Why did you decide to work in the aging field? I became excited about working with older Americans in graduate school. My mentors suggested branching out to develop skills in different populations while I was working at my first internship; a scholarship I was awarded to work with traumatized children and the new Christmas Box House program through Salt Lake County Youth Services. Because of this, I began to research opportunities to work with older veterans, as I come from a family of veterans, including my son.
