I'm Sophie Dover, Tufts Class of 2013. I graduated as a Coro Fellow in May 2015. I studied Sociology and Community Health during undergrad, and worked for a year as a Community Health Worker in Boston before applying to the Coro Fellows Program to learn more about how policy works on a larger scale, in a larger city. During my Coro year, I saw firsthand how policy and programming in the world of housing and community development cumulatively affect community health outcomes, especially in marginalized communities. I am now passionate about affordable housing as a central determinant of quality of life in New York City; and the power of the Fellows Program to expand participants' worldviews and professional networks in order to implement social change. Other Coro Jumbos include: Erik Antokal, William Huang, Averi Becque, Shabazz Stuart, Nina Scheinman...
Interested? An information session will be held in Mayer Campus Center at 12 PM on October 9th, 2015. Pizza will be served! Come meet me and learn more about the Fellows Program!
