Kenneth Russell enjoyed his time in corporate America working for
Intel and NASAâbut something was missing. So he made a mid-career
U-turn, building on his desire to improve the health of underserved
people and enrolling as a nursing student at Samuel Merritt University.
Now, as a Bay Area Schweitzer Fellow,
Russellâwho will complete his Master of Science in Nursing-Case
Management this Mayâis partnering with the Intertribal Friendship House
in Oakland to carry out comprehensive health education and screenings
for Native American individuals.
âThis is a perfect way to actually get some external experience; gain
insight into some of the challenges of working with non-profit, local,
and state government agencies; and understand how various systems create
multi-faceted challenges for members of my project community,â Russell
