Celebrating a Stellar Year for Advocacy

Our resident-led advocacy group, PUSH, recently celebrated another year of advocating for our children.

  • Our program has been awarded the Leonard P. Rome CATCH Visiting Professorship Grant for 2019-2020! We look forward to working with Dr. Ben Hoffman to strengthen our advocacy training, increase the sustainability of our projects, and enhance collaboration within our community.  The main focus of this year is addressing the inequalities and availability of resources that exist across our city.
  • The annual Tri-Resident Cup competition resulted in nearly 1800 canned goods donated to Dare to Care, 3000 books donated to our clinics, 540 emails/calls to our legislators, and $1050 for community safety equipment!
  • Residents attended advocacy days in Frankfort, KY and Washington, DC.
