The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship of Alabama has announced the incoming 2023-24 fellows class, which includes 12 students from the University of Alabama at Birmingham

The Alabama Schweitzer Chapter was founded in 2015 and joined a national network of Albert Schweitzer Fellowship chapters across the United States. ASF chapters are dedicated to improving the health of vulnerable people by developing a corps of emerging professionals who enter the workforce with the skills and commitment necessary to address unmet health needs.

“Every year, we are blown away by the commitment to community that the graduate student applicants uphold in their applications and interviews,” said Kristin Boggs, executive director of ASF of Alabama. “These are students who desire not only to contribute to the health and well-being of others but also to learn from their community mentors and members. We are excited to come alongside these students as they seek to build trust and develop mutual partnerships.”
