Welcome to Summer Service Partnership 2014!

For the summer, I’ll be hanging out over at http://www.summerservicepartnership.com
This is the blog of the summer program that I direct, with the amazing help of Cathryn Smeyers, program manager extraordinaire.
With the Summer Service Partnership, 21 medical, professional, college and high school students come together to learn about the social determinants of health, map community assets, then do a health service project on a topic of their choice. We do STEAM education around community health concepts–while also emphasizing 21st century learning skills such as team work, leadership, project management, written and oral communication, networking and presentation skills. The summer demands creativity, flexibility and resiliency. Our final expectation, always, is “have fun!”
