The Villers Fellowship for Health Care Justice was created in 2005 by Phillippe Villers, founder and president of Families USA, to inspire and develop the next generation of health care justice leaders. The goal of the Villers Fellowship Program is three-fold:

During their year-long tenure, Villers Fellows will work on a variety of health care justice issues and develop an understanding of the federal legislation process. They will also be exposed to different advocacy strategies, including producing analytic reports, disseminating effective messages through the media, successful coalition building, and e-advocacy techniques.
