The Urban Health Fellows program was put in place by Cleveland State University to increase the number of underrepresented minority, and educationally and economically disadvantaged scholars in medical and allied health professional programs.
I approached this program with an entrepreneurial mindset.
When not funded by large donors, programs within large universities oftentimes do not receive the special branding and attentive care as their counterparts. I wanted the students to know and feel that they were a part of something monumental and that the name "Urban Health Fellow" came with high distinction.
