Annual Impact Report Released

It’s been an exciting start to summer for the Schweitzer Fellowship. This week we’re celebrating the release of our 2024 Annual Report. This report showcases the impact the Fellowship has had not only on our 21 recently graduated student Fellows but on all those they served over the last year. 

We hope you’ll take the time to review our full report, but here are a few highlights we wanted to be sure you didn’t miss:

  • 21 graduate students from 4 university partners emerged from our program better equipped to serve our state’s most vulnerable populations in their future health careers.
  • Partnering with 14 Alabama nonprofits, these Fellows provided 4,042 hours of service at a value of $120,532* – resulting in new or expanded programs and increased impact for these partner organizations.
  • In total, Fellows served 1,778 individuals throughout Alabama, increasing health and quality of life for those who historically experience disadvantage and barriers to care.

As you can see, our state is better positioned due to our Fellows’ commitment to the program and your commitment to them. We are so grateful to have you as a partner in the important work of training leaders to effectively serve vulnerable populations experiencing barriers to health and wellness, and we’ll continue to do just that with your ongoing support. 

2024-25 is on course to be our most impactful year yet, and we can’t wait to see the difference we will make together. We will leave you with these thoughts from a recently graduated Fellow which we feel so wonderfully describe the impact of the Fellowship experience on our students.
