Columbus Schweitzer Fellows Named 

 

The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship (ASF) is pleased to announce the selection of its inaugural class of Columbus Schweitzer Fellows, two of whom are students at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and one at the School of Allied Medical Professions. Over the next year, these OSU students will join approximately 260 other 2011-12 Schweitzer Fellows across the country in conceptualizing and carrying out service projects that address the health needs of underserved individuals and communities:

 

Michelle Caster, The Ohio State University College of Medicine
Caster will address the health and nutrition needs of the Columbus Somali refugee population by implementing a nutrition curriculum for elementary school children and conducting educational workshops for their parents. Caster’s culturally competent program will provide fun activities for students as well as a comfortable space for parents to discuss their concerns with nutrition, and will draw from the 5-2-1-0 Healthy Kids Countdown, a health promotion initiative based on evidence-based messaging that emphasizes healthy nutritional choices and behaviors.

Anne Marie Kessler, The Ohio State University College of Medicine
Kessler will address maternal health and infant mortality in the low-income Weinland Park neighborhood of Columbus by facilitating a weekly peer support group for new mothers. Mobilizing community volunteers, Kessler’s team will establish home-based, personalized support for each mother.

Upon completion of their initial year, Caster and Kessler will become Schweitzer Fellows for Life—and join a vibrant network of over 2,000 individuals who are skilled in, and committed to, addressing the health needs of underserved people throughout their careers as professionals. 99 percent of Fellows for Life say that ASF is integral to sustaining their commitment to serve the underserved.

 

Tessa Yoder, The Ohio State University School of Allied Medical Professions
Yoder is addressing the health of adults with developmental disabilities by creating a student-run health and wellness program that focuses on personal health maintenance, prevention, and participation in wellness activities. Yoder will recruit and facilitate a multidisciplinary team of Ohio State students to work with program participants; the team will conduct bi-weekly health and wellness programming at Goodwill Columbus.
