" I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because not only will I be able to pursue my goal of making sure physical and mental healthcare is accessible to all, I will also meet and collaborate with other driven individuals who, like me, are passionate about helping others and making the world a better place. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: A Health Hub
My nonprofit, A Health Hub, strives to provide free health care and lifestyle care for refugees in the DFW Area. Through the Millennium Fellowship Grant, I hope to expand my nonprofit to a larger scale, starting with Pittsburgh as there is a large refugee population here. I hope to start by hosting free health fairs at least once a semester to monitor vitals and do lab work for these refugees and possibly even get consults from doctors to allow the refugees access to free health care and advice on how to stay healthy. Along with my fellow peers and classmates, I hope to expand into areas such as mental health care, advice on nutrition and diets for these populations, offering the refugee populations a multitude of ways to take care of themselves, their health, and their families while adjusting to life in this country.
