Graduate student proposes Clinton Global Initiative project
Timothy Sirkoi, a health administration graduate student and graduate assistant for the office of student engagement, proposed a community health fair to be implemented at local elementary schools to address and improve student health. The program was accepted through the Bill Clinton Global Initiative, where students come together to address issues affecting communities worldwide.
Sirkoi’s project proposal aims to encourage established local entities and volunteers, including student organizations, community-based agencies and local healthcare providers, to provide children and families access to healthcare resources and education.
Sirkoi received feedback, advice and support for his program from other students and leaders at the 2013 Clinton Global Imitative University at Washington University in St. Louis. This event is an annual college student-focused program that engages future leaders in dialogue and discussion about innovative solutions to global challenges in the areas of education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation and public health.
