2012 Junior Fellow J-FIT Contest Winner
District V is Proud to Announce
Dr. Kelly Kuo
as Winner of The
2012 Junior Fellow Initiative Toolkit Contest (J-FIT)
The Junior Fellow Congress Advisory Council (JFCAC) has developed a contest entitled “Junior Fellow Initiative Toolkit“ (J-FIT), previously known as “Projects in a Box.” A Junior Fellow Initiative is any project or program that you developed to make a difference for women and their health care providers including service projects such as supply drives, educational sessions, medical student recruitment, and lobby days. A J-FIT is a detailed toolkit used to facilitate planning and carrying-out a specific Junior Fellow Initiative.
Dr. Kelly Kuo of Ohio was the lead resident on this community service project titled, "Adolescent Reproductive Health Education." This project was one of three winners for our new District V JFIT Contest we had for the first time this year! A total of nine submissions for the ACOG National JFIT Contest were received and three of those came from District V.
Objectives for this project were the following:
a. To provide inner-city middle school students with a comprehensive reproductive health curriculum, despite the challenges of a low-resource setting.
b. To improve students’ knowledge of reproductive anatomy, sexually transmitted diseases, contraception, and negotiating safe relationships
c. To increase awareness among resident physicians of current educational policy.
d. To help develop an ongoing relationship between University Hospitals and the Metropolitan School District students.
