“This project has uniquely allowed me to connect with patients around their own stories, view a side of healthcare rarely observed by students, and develop leadership skills that will be invaluable in my professional career.”

"This experience has sharpened my leadership skills, nourished my professional development, and inspired me to pursue a residency program to specialize in a very specific field where I can continue to serve patients suffering from oral pathology. Most of all, however, working with our patient population has given me a heart to serve."

“Our Schweitzer Project really brought what I learned in the classroom about Social Determinants of Health and health disparities to life. Instead of statistics on a PowerPoint slide, issues such as food insecurity and transportation inaccessibility were daily experiences that I discussed with patients in the clinic."

"I began to understand what Schweitzer was saying in developing a reverence for life. His vision made me understand that I could start giving back now and that as a privileged individual, this should be my duty."

2002-03 NC Fellow and 2004 Lambarene Fellow
NC Albert Schweitzer Fellowship Board Member

“There are a lot of things in the world that need to change and it easy to have opinions about what those changes are, but it is harder to actually make the change because that takes a lot of time and hard work. I have really appreciated having the opportunity this year to put my beliefs into action and feel like I was making a real difference in the lives of people I care about."
