20th Class of Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellows Announced

Health & Medicine and the Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellows Program are pleased to announce the members of the 2015-16 Fellowship class. Thirty exceptional health professions graduate students (selected from among nearly 100 applicants) will participate in the the prestigious Schweitzer Fellowship – a year-long service learning program that empowers Fellows to design and implement projects that help address the health needs of underserved Chicago communities.

The 2015-16 Schweitzer Fellows include students from 12 area universities and a diversity of health professions and public service fields including medicine, nursing, dentistry, psychology, social work, law, and public health. The Program’s interdisciplinary approach exposes students to real-world inter-professional, collaborative care, addressing the triple aim of the Affordable Care Act. This year’s Fellowship recipients belong to the 20th class of Chicago Area Schweitzer Fellows and join a network of more than 500 Chicago program alumni who have provided over 100,000 hours of community service over the course of the Program’s history.
