During her MS3 year, Sarah Freeman kept busy with publishing in prestigious journals as well as working with the State Department on pandemic responses at institutions of higher education around the US (talk about relevant!).

Welcome Madeline Brown, Allison Chu, Nicholas Hastings, Maame Amoako, Beau Blass, Danielle Levinson, Evlyn Samuel and Esme Trahair. We're also excited to welcome a new associate program director for pediatrics. Dr. Ellie Erickson recently stepped down from the role to pursue other opportunities and Dr. Naomi Duke recently took her place. Here's a message from Dr.

Congratulations to two Duke students, Trisha Dalapati and PCLT's very own second year student Tamar Chukrun for being selected as 2021 NC Albert Schweitzer fellows. Their project centers on the interface of housing and healthcare access. Founded in 1994, the NC Albert Schweitzer Fellowship is one of thirteen currently active Schweitzer program sites across the U.S. dedicated to developing a pipeline of emerging professionals who enter the workforce with the skills and commitment necessary to address unmet health needs.
