Einstein’s Community Corps, a new student-led service group, has received a three-year, $9,000 grant to better understand and address vaccine disparities in the Bronx.
The Einstein office of medical education (OME) has matched the award, which was given by the national honor medical society Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA). Einstein is one of only four institutions to receive an AOA Medical Student Service Leadership Project Grant for 2021.
The Community Corps will work closely with Einstein’s Community-Based Service Learning Program and OME leadership to:
Third- and fourth-year medical students will coordinate the logistics of the project; members of each medical school class year will be included in subcommittees to ensure its continuity.
