The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship
June 10, 2010
The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship is a wonderful organization that harnesses the capabilities of young health care professionals-in-training to exponentially increase the impact to the community. Each fellow conducts a 200-hour service project focusing on improving health in an under-served community over the course of a year. As a 09-10 Boston fellow, I can attest to the ASF's proficiency at developing and supporting future health care leaders. The monthly meetings include training by wonderful mentors on health disparities, cultural competency, health literacy and a host of other relevant topics. Overall, the ASF was a wonderful development experience that I will continue to recommend to young people year after year.
