Occupational Therapy Student Receives Schweitzer Fellowship
Jun 5, 2013, in Student News
Master’s student Ingrid Leu is one of seven USC graduate students who have been named 2013-2014 Albert Schweitzer Fellows.
The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship supports university graduate students to improve the health and well-being of vulnerable populations. Fellows partner with a community-based organization to identify an unmet health need, design a 200-hour service project with a demonstrable impact, and move the project from conception to implementation.
As an Albert Schweitzer Fellow, Leu will be working with Kedren Acute Psychiatric Hospital Community Mental Health Center. There she will be designing and implementing a recovery-oriented curriculum targeting adults with serious or persistent mental illness while helping them to increase their self-sufficiency and improve well-being.
