Medical humanities students named fellows

Seven students from McGovern Medical School were named recently as members of the 2019-2020 class of the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship Houston Galveston.  Among the students, who are developing and implementing yearlong mentored service projects, four are also members of the Medical Humanities Scholarly Concentration.

Datonye Charles is working on education about PrEP and medication adherence related to HIV/AIDS.  Meena Darden‘s project focuses on addressing psychosocial and holistic health to promote stability and emotional wellness among youth who are transitioning out of the foster care system.  Finally, Theja Reddy and Denise Zheng are collaborating to address mental well-being among refugee and at-risk youth in Houston through helping adolescents develop techniques for stress management and self-care.

We extend our congratulations to the students and wish them well in their service projects.
