2018-2019 Junior Fellows
The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship Houston-Galveston (ASFHG) is a 501c3 nonprofit that offers graduate and undergraduate students the opportunity to design and implement a year-long mentored community project that addresses an unmet health need for an underserved population in our area. Students are paired with mentors, field experts and community sites to enhance and extend the services of existing community organizations who serve vulnerable population, with the goal of creating immediate and lasting impact in the Houston-Galveston area.
The fellowship uses a highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to foster the skills and the development of tomorrow’s healthcare leaders. Fellows are selected via our partnerships with the University of Texas Health System, University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, Baylor College of Medicine, University of Houston and South Texas College of Law, and to date, have contributed over 30,000 service hours. Over the ten years since the fellowship began, fellows have completed projects in areas such as HIV/AIDS care, homeless support, oral health, nutrition, refugee health, mental health awareness, mobile health clinics, smartphone health apps, family and teen support groups, healthcare education and more!
