Blaze a trail to a healthier future
A new opportunity for students who join Calvin in the fall of 2024.
In a time of pandemic, one thing is clear: the physical, mental, and spiritual health of our communities affects each and every one of us. If ever there was a time for passionate thinkers and problem-solvers to step forward and chart a course to a healthier society, it is now.
As a health ambassador, you’ll be part of a tight-knit group that shares your passion for shaping healthier communities. And because this is Calvin, you’ll learn by doing—solving real-world problems in real communities. You could spearhead a health-focused service project in a local neighborhood. You might travel abroad to see firsthand how different communities grapple uniquely with the challenge of public wellness.
The challenges we face can be as broad as a pandemic and as local as a single person’s mental health. As a health ambassador, you’ll graduate with the skill and experience to lead from the front lines.
The Health Ambassadors cohort will be available starting in the fall 2024 semester. Applications to join the cohort will open fall 2023.
