Caitlin Partyka, a first-year student at Boston College Graduate School of Social Work, has been selected as a 2012-2013 Albert Schweitzer Fellow in recognition of her dedication and skill in meeting the health needs of underserved communities, and whose example influences and inspires others.

Working through Sociedad Latina in Roxbury, Partyka has established an exercise program that offers weekly opportunities for area youths to participate in physical activity and to learn about diabetes prevention, nutrition, and overall health and wellness. Through the program, she also hopes to foster leadership among young people, bolstering their confidence and problem-solving skills in the process.

"Caitlin represents the professionalism, drive, and creativity that social workers strive for on a continual basis. She is a complete asset to our profession and we are so proud of her fellowship," said GSSW faculty member Sandee Tisdale.  More about Schweitzer Fellow from the Boston College Chronicle »
