What impact has Milwaukee AHEC had in your life? 

"I came into Milwaukee AHEC through the CHIP summer program. Through CHIP, I have built a deeper understanding for—and respect towards— the many different roles in healthcare.

 

One particular moment that stood out to me involved working with a graduating cohort of community health workers. I was so inspired to hear how one trainee was able to use her life experience to inform her work at the Transitions Clinic Network, addressing the unique health and social needs of individuals returning from jail or prison.

 

CHIP’s focus on interdisciplinary team-building has lead me to reflect upon the wholistic view of a patient and the multiple avenues through which to address the health of a community."
