Nadesha Phipps has continued on a pre-health track and will obtain a Certificate in Community Engagement. In addition, she has been part of the Bonner Program, actively volunteering in the community.
Nadesha spent the second semester of her first year on campus working at George Marks Elementary as a classroom teacher aid. As a sophomore, she worked as a community care intern at AdventHealth Community Care, assisting Stetson’s Health Coaching Program. That program allowed Stetson students to train and become health coaches to work one-on-one with patients in need throughout the community. With the support of the Community Care team, she worked diligently to improve her skill set as a team player, especially when it came to identifying and addressing patients' needs and concerns through collaboration.
In all, she completed more than 1,000 hours of community service through the Bonner Program to help invoke change — something she plans to continue doing after graduation.
