Erickson

This June, Women's Health Research will welcome Lucy Erickson, 2017-19 Executive Branch Fellow at NSF, as its new director of scientific programs. “Since starting the fellowship, the horizon of possibility is a bit broader: my fellowship experience really opened my eyes to what kinds of career paths exist beyond the traditional academic path, and to how many different ways there are to make an impact on the world while drawing on my scientific training,” she said.

Kristin
Lewis

Kristin Lewis, 2014-16 Executive Branch Fellow at NASA, is back at AAAS – this time as a staffer! She directs the Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellowship and co-leads the IF/THEN Ambassadors program. “My STPF fellowship directly led to my involvement with the Fourth National Climate Assessment, which is a highlight of my career. The network of talented fellows that I gained helps me continue to grow even long after my fellowship was over. I'm excited to come back and help provide a meaningful fellowship experience to Mass Media Fellows."
