Fit Pharmacist Podcast host Adam Martin, PharmD., interviews Luke Propst with the Diet Doc. 
"I'm so busy- I don't have TIME to workout!"
^If this is you, I HAVE THE SOLUTION!!
In this interview, I speak with coach Luke E. Propst, the training director of The Diet Doc, LLC and owner of Predator Strength Training.
My niche is helping people who default to “I just don’t have enough time” realize that yes, yes they do- by using simple health hacks and strategies to MAXIMIZE the time through optimization and helpful tips and tricks!
*We CLARIFY and SIMPLIFY the most common perceived barriers I hear from healthcare professionals who want to fit in fitness, but can't seem to find the time! These questions include:
1. How long should a workout take to be effective?
2. Is stretching really necessary? Why, and WHEN do I do it (before/after)?
3. Warming up and cooling down- WHY? Can I save time w/o adding risk?
4. Which workout protocol/plan is “best”?
5. Lifting: high reps for ‘toning’, low reps for strength, right? Rep ranges etc.
6. DO I have to do cardio AND weights?
7. If I lift weights, will I turn into a man?!?

Merry Midyear - in 4 parts - of which some focuses on Fellowships: 

Early and Mid-Career Fellowships for Pharmacy, Healthcare, Public Health and Policy:

Culture of Health Leaders (RWJF):

Each leader will have access to up to $20,000 per year for three years (total of up to $60,000). Additional tools and resources will be available for year 3 project-related activities. The Culture of Health Leaders program provides cross-sector leadership development based on evidence, informed by experience, and grounded in principles of equity and social justice. The program is open to individuals from a variety of disciplines—such as technology, the arts, public policy, business, community development, education, transportation, public health, health care, and others—who are committed to working with organizations, communities, health systems, and policymakers to build a Culture of Health in America. 

This program offers a unique opportunity for outstanding, mid-career U.S. professionals—academics, government officials, clinical leaders, decision makers in managed care and other private health care organizations, and journalists—to spend up to 10 months in Australia conducting research and working with Australian health policy experts on issues relevant to both countries. The Fellowship provides up to $87,000 (AUD) for the maximum term of ten months, with a minimum stay in Australia of six months required. There is also a family supplement available (e.g. approximately $50,000 for a spouse and two children).

Some additional examples:
Carol Emmott Fellowship
The Fellowship offers a 14-month self-guided program for women professionals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership potential in the health field and wish to increase leadership competencies, hands-on experience, and work with exceptional mentors. Each fellow is paired with two hand-selected mentors who are nationally recognized senior health leaders. Each fellow receives an honorarium to help cover desired professional development enrichment experiences. Additionally, fellows attend four sponsored onsite events that provide a framework for the program. Candidates are nominated by their sponsoring organization; qualified nominees are invited to apply.
Foster America
Bringing skills from business, public health, education, marketing, technology, and public policy backgrounds, Foster America fellows provide the spark to create dramatic change and improve the lives of children. Our fellows are embedded at government or nonprofit child welfare agencies for one year, joining reform-minded colleagues and mentors to pursue better results. Prior to the start of the fellowship, fellows receive an intensive two-week training. Fellows work full-time at their placement agency, receiving an annual salary of up to $90,000, plus benefits. Candidates must have authorization to work in the U.S.

Tips on Great Fellowship Applications:
1. You may have to apply more than once, if you're really interested and it is highly competitive.
2. Understand the fellowship's mission - and be sure to advance the mission in your application and your projects. What are they trying to achieve?
3. Speak to at least 3 former fellows of the program - at ProFellow network, or find them on LinkedIn or Google search.
4. Think about your story - what's your career track? Express your story to others through your written application, along with what you'll do AFTER the fellowship.
