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.
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.

The NEW Segment part of the 'Pharmacy Compliance Guide' is hosted by Jenny Schell, CDME Sr. Compliance Strategist with R. J. Hedges & Associates.
Podcast on Medicare Applications by the Numbers
A lot of people ask me about Medicare. There is a lot of confusion on who needs what number.
Medicare Number –This division (NSC) takes about 3 months to issue a number. This application requires you to carry a surety bond and have a certificate of liability with NSC as the certificate holder as well as your AO (if you have one).
New applications as well as re-validations will require owners and authorized officials to be fingerprinted.
Two ways to complete
Revalidation happens every 3 – 5 years
What that means
You “update” your Medicare application and pay Medicare $$. Every year they change the Medicare application fee. For 2018 it is $569 per application.
