Jilian Krueger, School & Community Outreach Coordinator for Promise Heights, has been selected to participate in the UM School of Nursing's Interprofessional Program for Academic Community Engagement (IPACE) fellowship program.
IPACE's Fellows Program in Community Engagement and Service-Learning Education aims to advance the application of a social determinants of health and a social justice framework to promote health equity, acknowledging how structural inequalities, such as racism perpetuate injustices in Baltimore. Fellows will learn how to incorporate and enhance service-learning pedagogy into their coursework and teaching methods, in order to increase student knowledge and experience, and become life-long learners committed to community engagement and social justice.

Promise Heights congratulates Ms. Krueger on being selected! We are excited to see how she will integrate these new skills into the work she is already doing with our schools and the PromiseCorps program in the Upton/Druid Heights neighborhood.
