Health Education Success

“I’m Radha Patel and I am a junior at UConn majoring in Molecular and Cell Biology and Anthropology. The Health Education Center (Eastern AHEC)’s Collegiate Health Service Corps (CHSC) program has been a great experience. On top of being the UConn site’s program director of Collegiate Health Service Corps (CHSC), I am also an RA and a member of Partners in Health Engage. I joined CHSC my freshman year and applied because I wanted to do something outside of my comfort zone and be able to help medically underserved populations around the area. I learned quickly how important preventative care and health education was and became close to not only the people at each site, but also the passionate members of my team. I knew I wanted to continue with this organization and became site manager my sophomore year and program director this year. I have learned so much from the people at each site and hope they can say the same about the health lessons we deliver.”
