Are you interested in gaining more experience in healthcare prior to medical or graduate school? Project Horseshoe Farm is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization offering unique, hands-on opportunities for recent graduates and undergraduates interested in leadership, service, and community-based healthcare.

Located in rural Greensboro, Alabama, the organization manages several innovative programs to support and improve the health and quality of life of adults in its community, including the elderly and those with mental illness. It also runs a comprehensive K-12 after school program for underserved children in the area.

In addition to managing Adult Day Programs, Youth Programs, two Enhanced Independent Living Housing Programs, fellows and interns have opportunities to shadow and learn about psychiatry, nursing, social work, and family medicine. Past fellows have gone on to pursue medicine and other graduate studies at top institutions across the US, as well as education and nonprofit work.

While at Amherst, she wrote for various publications, enjoyed working at Book & Plow Farm, and focused her studies on issues of health, culture and inequality. She is interested in pursuing a career of writing, as well as work within the social policy and environmental health fields.
