How to get involved

If you are a student:

1. Look over the other pages on this blog, particularly opportunities for collaboration pages, and come up with a proposal based on your interests and resources.

2. Look over the suggested reading. It is not necessary that you read it all (or even most), but it will give you some idea of my interests.

3. Write a brief (no more than 2 paragraphs) summary of your proposal. Be very specific about what you want to get out of the experience by listing in order of importance for you your 5 reasons. For example: 1. fulfill the requirements for a course, 2. get a letter of recommendation for medical school, 3. publish a paper in an academic journal, 4. get research experience, 5. help people in developing countries, etc. This is very important; it gives me an idea what your goals and priorities are, and will help as we move forward. Don’t spend too much time on it; just a few unpolished sentences that gives me some idea what you want to get out of the experience.

4. Send that proposal, along with a CV to: swancitos (at) gmail (dot) com. Two letters of recommendation would be helpful, but are not required. The letters can be sent by email.

5. I will then contact you, and we can see if we have an interest or passion in common, a “shared vision” for the future.

If you are an academic or advocate, I’d love to hear about how we might collaborate as well.


  1. […] Posted in Uncategorized at 1:31 pm by chads Welcome to this Health Systems Stewards blog, my attempt at making academic connections and collaborations more efficient. Take a look at the pages to your right; there is background on me and my work, and opportunities for research and advocacy that I will update periodically. I hope to hear from you soon! See here for how to contact me. […]

  2. Tracy Benson insisted that we talk. I do think that my systems and health policy work aligned well with your work. I can be reached at @mbattlefisher. My webpage is Let’s talk soon.
