Biology Major Jessica Kim '09 Awarded Haverford House Fellowship

Jessica Kim '09 will serve a one-year term and work four days per week with a non-profit organization in the Philadelphia area. Haverford House Fellows dedicate their fifth workday to projects that engage the College with Greater Philadelphians devoted to a more socially just, healthy and vibrant community.

Jessica describes her placement and project as follows:

Placement: I will be serving my placement at the Lourdes Center for Public Health in Camden, NJ. I will be coordinating projects that focus on issues of violence prevention, diabetes telemedicine, food access, and healthcare for the uninsured. I will also be working with undergraduate students to conduct population-based research that will ultimately be utilized to help reduce healthcare disparities.

Project idea: I want to run a mentoring program that will connect Haverford students with middle school students in Camden. I also hope to start a summer safety program run by Haverford students open to children in both Camden, NJ and Philadelphia. The activities will focus on violence prevention as an issue of public health.
