Since its founding in 1940, The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship (ASF) has grown far beyond our original focus on supporting the Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, Gabon, Africa. Over the years our mission evolved. Today, through the work of the Schweitzer Fellows, ASF extends our influence on community and clinical health in the United States and across the globe, thereby perpetuating the legacy and philosophy of famed physician-humanitarian Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
ASF is preparing the next generation of professionals who will serve and empower vulnerable people to live healthier lives and create healthier communities.
The ASF vision is to create a global corps of leaders who promote positive change with and in our communities, our health and human service systems, and our world.
