Sienna, Julie, Lilly, & Chloe
Lilly Scheibe is a junior in Saybrook from Groton, Massachusetts. She joined CHE as a first year and was a member of the small group Relationships and Abuse. Sophomore year, she was a member of SCOMM and was a small group leader for this same group, along with Geeta Rao. This year, she is a Co-Coordinator, and couldn't be more excited to lead this organization, since she has seen first-hand the immediate impact the workshops have on the New Haven student community. She joined CHE because it provided a unique opportunity to combine her health-focused premed inclinations with her desire to get to know the city of New Haven and particularly its youth, her interest in education, and the value that she places on comprehensive, accurate sex-ed. The group has provided all of this and more, and she has not only grown personally as a result of her participation, but has also had the privilege of witnessing the growth of the knowledge and confidence of the students that she have been lucky enough to teach.
Chloe is a senior in Davenport from Berkeley, California majoring in the History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health. She is a Fellow in the Global Health Scholars Program and a member of the 5-year Master’s program in Public Health. Chloe is passionate about exploring ways to reduce barriers to healthcare for minority women in the local community, and currently conducts research on teen pregnancy in New Haven through the Yale School of Public Health. She absolutely loves teaching health education and finds CHE to be one of the most important parts of her Yale experience. Outside of CHE, Chloe enjoys reading, exploring new cities, and hosting potlucks with friends.
Julie Berenblum is a junior in Berkeley College majoring in the History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health. She is from Cos Cob, CT and aspires to be a dentist. She loves volunteering for CHE and teaching students of all ages. As a first year, she taught Mental Health. Her sophomore year she was the head of scheduling which was an incredible experience to see all of the behind the scenes work for the organization. Now she is now one of the co-coordinators and is so excited to lead this amazing group of individuals. The experience of volunteering for CHE has opened her eyes to many health concerns in the New Haven area and the ways in which Yale students can use their resources and passions to reach out and help. In her free time, Julie loves to run, sing, play tennis, and spend time with friends!
