Maryland Independent - - Celebrations -

Lau­ren Cox of Wal­dorf, a stu­dent at Uni­ver­sity of North Carolina School of Medicine, was named to the 2016-2017 Class of North Carolina Sch­weitzer Fel­lows.

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with com­mu­nity-based health and/or so­cial ser­vice or­ga­ni­za­tions, Sch­weitzer Fel­lows de­velop and implement ser­vice projects that ad­dress the root causes of health dis­par­i­ties in un­der-re­sourced com­mu­ni­ties, while also ful­fill­ing their aca­demic re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

For her project, Cox will help di­a­betic pa­tients at MAHEC Cane Creek Fam­ily Health Cen­ter man­age their dis­ease by teach­ing healthy life­style changes through group vis­its and ed­u­ca­tion.
