The Villers Fellowship for Health Care Justice was created in 2005 by Philippe Villers, founder and President of Families USA, to inspire and develop the next generation of health care justice leaders. The goal of the Villers Fellowship program is three-fold:

  • To develop a network of young leaders who share a passion for social and health care justice
  • To inspire Villers Fellows to continue working for health care justice throughout their lives
  • To help achieve Families USA’s goal of guaranteed, high-quality, affordable health care for all of us

During their year-long tenure, Villers Fellows work on Medicaid and enrollment policy issues and develop an understanding of the federal legislative and regulatory process. They will also be exposed to different advocacy strategies, including producing analytic reports, disseminating effective messages through the media, successful coalition building, and e-advocacy techniques.
