Disability Policy Fellowship for Egbatan

Congratulations to graduate student Mine Egbatan! She is the recipient of a Disability Policy Fellowship from the Sonoran Center for Excellence in Disabilities, a federally recognized University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) located administratively in the Department of Family and Community Medicine, College of Medicine. The purpose of the fellowship is to enhance students’ knowledge of the process of policy development relevant to the community of individuals with developmental and other disabilities. The one-year fellowship will involve experience in researching key ongoing state and national policy issues, tracking mechanisms of policy development, and proposing a course of potential actions/solutions. As part of these activities, Mine will be provided experiences to shadow policy meetings, attend seminars about policy development, and meet with individuals in the community working toward policy development relevant to her chosen area of interest.
