" I look forward to working with my exceptional peers in the Millennium Fellowship Class of 2021, on my home campus and abroad, as collaborative environments remain the most potent stimulant for fostering greater thinking. Although we each may have our own unique vision, I am greatly inspired by our joint belief that the global community can benefit through social impact endeavors. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Recordings for Relief
After the pandemic started, I believe digital media consumption has become the primary method by which patients in long-term care facilities and hospitals can be entertained due to the restrictions placed on in-person visitation. Thus, I would like to develop a robust program in which students can personalize and easily record audiobooks to be sent to care facilities. Then, rather than turning on movies or the radio for patients, nurses and caretakers can play this audio instead. This idea can be extrapolated from audiobooks to even include digital conversation video recordings so that the long-term patient and student can develop a relationship. Such interactions will be of immeasurable value to both students and patients, so I aim to reach at least 100 patients through the program.
About the Millennium Fellow
Srish Chenna is a rising sophomore majoring in Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. As an aspiring physician-leader, Srish is passionate about the inherent intersection between public/global health and the administration of personalized, quality healthcare. He wholeheartedly believes that such care can only be effectively delivered when a caregiver recognizes that a patient's physical and mental strength are of equal importance. This notion serves to further motivate him to pursue the work he will continue as a Millennium Fellow.
