My experience with the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship (ASF) was a life enhancing experience. As a fellow in 2009-10, I developed and led a support group for formerly chronically homeless adults in the Boston area. The experience afforded extensive opportunities to develop leadership skills by connecting scholars and leaders in the service community with the fellows in the program. Through monthly meetings with community leaders, volunteer opportunities, and project assistance with professional mentors and trained ASF staff, the fellowship offers structured leadership development through the spirit of service. One particular example of this connectedness with my own project occurred through a physician with the Healthcare for the Homeless team in Boston who presented on Housing First programs to address homelessness in the Boston area. Her research and efforts inspired me to pursue work on a fellowship project (outlined in brief above) supporting these efforts in a neighboring community. The support of mentors, both academic and project skill specific affords fellows in this program tools to take initiative in addressing health disparaties in creative ways. Encouragement and expertise of the ASF staff further enhanced the experience. Health disparities are areas where the heart and head often collide to create frustration. However, the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship approaches this liminal state as fertile ground for grass roots change and leadership development.

The Schweitzer Fellowship Program is a service-learning program that helps graudate students earn the skills and experience they need to be leaders in community service. The Fellowship helped me learn about an underserved community, learn skills in group facilitation and communication, break my stereotypes, and develop my skills in program development and implementation, all while allowing me to serve a community in need.

This organization provides a doorway where people who want to help the community in need can step in and find Mentors, tools, support and some funds to be used. i found it a very fascinating experience as i tried to help induce self management support system for chronic disease management in homeless people.

i have seen this organization help several students plan and implement several strategies to reduce health disparities in the needy communities. This makes a huge impact on the people served as the students are well mentored by a faculty and a site mentor

This is a fantastic organization that helps to address disparities in the community and equips future health professionals to address those disparities. The program provides great support for students (fellows) for one year and provides for and encourages former fellows to continue working after the fellowship year ends.

As a student, I benefited from the support of the fellowship as I completed my fellowship project. This is a fantastic program reaching many health professional student and communities each year.
