Constructive Criticism

The Student Health Coalition was always a work in progress. At the end of each summer, those who served in the SHC were encouraged to reflect on what had worked well, and what had not. Their suggestions for improvement precipitated changes that were constantly being made in how the SHC was organized, who was recruited, and which communities were visited from one summer to the next. Many years later, this process of self-criticism has continued, as former members of the SHC reflect on how their work might have been done differently – and better.
