Medical Home Network Invests in Community with Paid Data Analytics Fellowship


An immersive Medical Home Network (MHN) technology fellowship is delivering on its promise to invest in emerging talent from under-represented communities. Participants in the MHN Data Analytics Fellowship get firsthand experience with healthcare data, health analytics and programming skills, feeding the pipeline of new science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals.

MHN, a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming care and building healthier communities in the safety net, was founded by the Comer Family Foundation in 2009. The MHN Data Analytics Fellowship, launched in 2021, is offered in partnership with the foundation and UtmostU, the signature program of the Network for Young Adult Success (NYAS). NYAS provides college persistence and workforce development services to help students complete post-secondary degrees, secure jobs and work toward financial independence.
