Michael Wilcox, a Doctor of Pharmacy student at Chicago State University, will be assisting LGBTQ adults 50 years and older acquire skills and resources to successfully navigate the aging process. Michael seeks to raise $1000 to help with providing health food options, fund social events, and ensure the project's sustainability beyond his Fellowship year.
The Schweitzer Fellowship is a year-long service learning program for graduate students in health-related professions who will design and implement innovative direct service projects aimed at improving the health and well-being of underserved Chicago area communities. Through their community projects and participation in a year-long program that includes mentoring support, monthly meetings, written reflection, and interprofessional collaboration, Schweitzer Fellows are developing the skills and confidence needed to become Leaders in Service—professionals who will remain dedicated to public service and to creating change.
In July 2014, the Schweitzer Fellows for Life network launched Summer Fest 2014 a year-long campaign to help support our current Fellows' projects. Each of the Fellows has created a "wish list" of supplies and resources that will help them realize their service project goals.
