Three Stanford Medicine students have been named to the 2015-16 class of San Francisco Bay Area Albert Schweitzer Fellows. The fellows will spend a year learning about and completing community service projects while pursuing their individual academic paths and developing leadership skills. Each fellow will receive a $2,000 stipend.
Following are names of the Stanford medical students and their projects:
- Gunsagar Gulati will develop a health-coaching and education program for patients at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center Milpitas.
- Jecca Steinberg plans to help pediatric preschool-age patients at Fair Oaks Clinic in Redwood City prepare for school.
- Paula Trepman will work with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula to teach elementary school students healthy habits using dance and nutrition education.
Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and health care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics), and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
