Student Engagement Advisor / TRAINING & FRESHMAN WORKSHOP ADVISOR
Margaret is a junior in TD who began her CHExperience as a Single Classroom Educator her first year at Yale. There she met Akielly Hu (now one of her best friends). In the summer of 2016, Margaret updated the CHE curriculum to include info on female sexual pleasure, the clitoris (with 3D-printed models!), and trans issues for the first time. She also heavily updated the mental health, substance abuse, and relationship and abuse workshops to make them more comprehensive and accessible to all students (and more sensitive to students dealing with those issues). Last year, Margaret and Akielly were co-Group Heads for the SCEs and also teamed up as co-Evaluations Advisors. Margaret came up with the idea of moving our pre- and post-evaluations online, and with the help of Akielly, successfully piloted the idea at Co-Op High School, facilitating data collection and analysis. This year, Margaret will be the Student Engagement Advisor, sitting in on classrooms across the city to figure out how CHE can do an even better job.
I'm Akielly, the First Year Workshops and Training Advisor this year. I've been involved with CHE since my first year, and it's one of my favorite things I do at Yale. In the past, I've volunteered as a Single Classroom Educator, which I definitely recommend since you get to teach all of the workshops! I'm excited to continue to work with people who believe so strongly in the importance of health education.
My name is Emily, and I am a sophomore in Silliman from Great Neck, New York. I am a Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology major and premedical student. Community Health Educators has not only allowed me to pursue my passion for medicine and public health in a meaningful way, but it has also given me the opportunity to get involved in the New Haven community. Last, year I taught the Nutrition and Substance Abuse workshop, and this year I am serving as one of the High School Liaisons. CHE is one of the most rewarding groups I have been a part of, and I look forward to seeing it continue to grow and impact the New Haven Community!
