Earlier this month, ASF announced the selection of the 2010 Lambaréné Schweitzer Fellows — three medical Fellows and three public health Fellows who will travel to the Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, Gabon, Africa to provide both traditional care and village-based outreach.

Two of those public health Fellows and one of those medical Fellows are firsts: Elise Fields is the first pharmacy student to receive a Lambaréné Fellowship (she’s at the University of Washington);  Annie Nagy is the first Lambaréné Fellow selected from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health (or GSPH, from where she graduated this month); and Wael Salem is the first Lambaréné Fellow selected from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine.

Find out more about Nagy’s fascinating path to Lambaréné in GSPH’s feature, available here; read more about Fields’ background and ambitions for her time in Lambaréné in the University of Washington’s UWeek feature.
