Community Engagement Liaisons (CELs)
What is a CEL?
Community Engagement Liaisons for each house work closely with partnering community organizations to find volunteer opportunities that will both benefit the partner and generate outreach activities for medical students. We coordinate and plan service and/or volunteer opportunities in order to help organizations and communities in the Madison area, provide meaningful and fun volunteer opportunities for students, and to foster a house identity within UWSMPH.
Who can attend meetings? Who can be a member?
Any medical student, regardless of house, can attend a volunteer or service event coordinated by the CELs. Students are not limited to just volunteering with the Community Partner for their own House.
What do CELs do?
We strive to have medical students involved in the diverse communities around Madison. As future M.D. candidates, an in depth, personal understanding of the health risks and factors that affect the friends and families in our communities will be a helpful and effective tool in serving and advocating for their health and wellness.
