Fulbright Specialist Roster

The Fulbright Scholar Program has selected Arnell Hinkle, executive director of CANFIT, to serve as a Fulbright specialist in public/global health for a five-year term. The Fulbright Specialist Program awards grants to US Scholars and professionals to engage in short-term, collaborative projects at institutions and universities in over 140 countries. Ms. Hinkle’s experience will be matched with an overseas host institution, where she will work on a cross-national topic that aims to strengthen institutional development needs. Through this opportunity, Arnell will work internationally with institutions that want to use her 25 years of experience educating youth, adult providers, and university students; and collaboratively strategizing effective community nutrition and physical activity solutions that take youth culture, race, culture, and socio-economic status into account.
