The CommonWell Fellows program is a service learning program for professional school students at Boston University, designed to teach future leaders about how socioeconomic status defines health, and how they can use their professional skills and position to help improve community health. Two students will be selected from each of six schools at BU (School of Management, School of Law, School of Medicine, School of Education, School of Social Work, and the School of Public Health) to participate in a speaker series, 20 hours of community service in a Boston organization, and the opportunity to research and present on a topic related to the group’s mission. By the end of the program, Fellows will be better informed about how socioeconomic status affects health, how interdisciplinary organizations work towards improving the lives of the underprivileged, and the roles that professionals play in their efforts. Fellows will have developed relationships with community leaders, advocates, and other students interested in this mission. Meetings generally will take place on Friday afternoons, and community service scheduling may be at the student’s convenience.
