Corps for Rural Success and Health (CRUSH)
The AmeriCorps members as administered by Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) will establish and deliver a Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) service learning based curriculum to students whose Ohio urban and rural school districts lack the resources to provide academic and career skill support necessary for students to obtain a sustainable career in the health care industry, a growing Ohio career opportunity. HPAC students Identify a health issue in their community and Develop a project that brings awareness to the issue. They enact their program and assess the effectiveness, and then share their results at Scholars Day in the spring at NEOMED. Members will serve in schools in their current geographical location. Service Sites include schools across Northeast Ohio, and the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Marietta regions. All members are also trained and certified as Community Health Workers through the Ohio Board of Nursing.
