The creation and success of a partnership takes a committed, hardworking and “never say no” village but the initial idea and support always begins with one dream and one small voice that says – yes. For this Partnership that voice was Andrew Smith, a seven year old with special needs who is just plain special. He innately recognized the potential for Corbin’s Legacy and through his unique vision brought together two institutions to make change for good because no child should suffer and no parent should feel powerless.
The result, we are pleased to announce is the Corbin’s Legacy / MPH CGHS ATSU (Masters of Public Health Department, College of Graduate Health Sciences, AT Still University) Partnership.
Each institution brings a set of unique strengths to the Partnership.
MPH CGHS ATSU has an active graduate level program that includes a diverse faculty and student body committed to promoting all aspects of public health. The program provides an environment of academics, research and service in which students receive training in public health culminating in the Masters of Public Health degree (MPH).
Corbin’s Legacy is an educational and health initiative dedicated to delivering goods and services to elementary school aged children and families in need. This is accomplished through strategic community partnerships with educators, healthcare providers, institutions of higher educations, professional honor societies and community stakeholders.
Together this strategic Partnership will assist underserved children and their families with educational and healthcare needs in agreed upon geographic areas. Allow for meaningful, professional and academically sound service and practicum opportunities for MPH students and jointly contribute to the greater good and welfare of children across the country.
