MPH student Jessica Jolly reflects on her Albert Schweitzer Fellowship


Jessica Jolly, an MPH student and MHA '13 grad, shares her experience with the Columbus-Athens Albert Schweitzer Fellowship program, and her project: the Centering Family Health Program.

The fellowship encourages students to follow the example set by famed physician and humanitarian, Albert Schweitzer. The Columbus-Athens component is one of 13 university-based sites throughout the nation.

“The most rewarding aspect of being an Albert Schweitzer Fellow is knowing that you’re making a difference, and it’s right there in the community,” Jolly said.
