“The JPB Environmental Health Fellowship is a really phenomenal program,” added Carmen Marsit, Ph.D., director of Emory University’s EHS Core Center. “Having seen the great success of the program, measured in tangible metrics, like publications and promotion of the fellows, as well as in intangible metrics, like the impact of the work on communities and on policy, I think this is an incredibly valuable experience.”
