Why I Applied to be a Fellow
""I joined the Health and Aging Policy Fellowship through a National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) funded postdoctoral fellowship in rehabilitation policy research at the University of Washington. My primary goal was to gain hands-on experience at the federal level in social and health policy development and implementation as it relates to individuals aging into and with disability.""
