Audrey Hertenstein, a medical student at Loyola University Chicago, will be facilitating group based health classes for women looking to achieve goals in weight loss, stress reduction, and life-style change. She seeks to raise $400 for healthy-recipe cooking books in Spanish and English to motivate women who regularly attend the class. She also hopes to raise $100 for bus passes so that women attend the class to co-facilitate lesson plans and empower their peers.
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.
