We have a long history in nurturing the next generation of population health scientists through our interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship programs. Since 1990, a new cohort of postdocs has arrived annually to take part in the David E. Bell Fellowship Program. These early-career scientists—coming from fields such as sociology, public policy, medicine, and economics—have studied a broad range of critical issues in the field of population science. Postdocs in the newer Sloan Fellowship on Aging and Work bring an interdisciplinary approach to the broad issues of “aging and the labor force” by building on recent advances in population health sciences, demography, and allied social sciences.
