Second-Year Student Todd Hassee Selected as Schweitzer Fellow
On April 29, the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship (ASF) announced the selection of its inaugural class of Indiana Schweitzer Fellows--one of whom is second-year student Todd Hassee. Over the next year, Hassee will join approximately 260 other 2011-12 Schweitzer Fellows across the country in conceptualizing and carrying out service projects that address the health needs of underserved indivuduals and communities. Specifically, Hassee will address the legal needs of low-income individuals by working to establish a medical-legal partnership [MLP] at the Indiana University Student Outreach Clinic, a free clinic that operates weekly on Saturdays. The IU-SOC is a non-profit student-run clinic dedicated to providing free medical care and other services to the underserved and uninsured of Indiana. The clinic fulfills this mission through the work and dedication of Indiana University students and faculty, as well as the generosity of donors.
Upon completion of his initial year, Hassee will become a "Schweitzer Fellow for Life" and join a vibrant network of over 2,000 individuals who are skilled in, and committed to, addressing the health needs of underserved people throughout their careers as professionals.
