Forty graduate students from 36 institutions across the nation represented medical, physician assistant, dental, pharmacy, public health, physical/occupational therapy, and graduate nursing disciplines during the 2015 Student Leadership Symposium held in Washington, D.C. from June 26-28. The 2015 class of APTR Paul Ambrose Scholars are dedicated to bringing health promotion and preventive approaches to health professions education and their communities.

Throughout the leadership development program, participants attended presentations focused on perspectives on prevention, healthcare and the economy, health policy advocacy, project planning and community organizing, health literacy, funding opportunities, media relations, social determinants of health, and careers in public health and prevention. The symposium provides an interprofessional opportunity for students to learn leadership and organizational skills from expert faculty in the field of prevention and population health.

The Paul Ambrose Scholars Program (PASP) is planned and implemented by APTR and sponsored by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). PASP seeks to meet the current and future health needs of the public by providing mini-grant funds to implement a Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicators project within a student's community or at their academic institution.
