Video: How student orgs, research have shaped Josie’s future

Finding meaningful ways to connect your studies with opportunities to serve community members in need and build your expertise in your field is game-changing. And it’s what happens every day at Case Western Reserve University. 

It’s what is putting senior Josie Shiff (pictured here) on her path to leadership in science and health care. 

Josie is studying nutrition and is president of CWRU’s Food Recovery Network, which redirects uneaten food from university dining facilities to those in need in the community. 

She also is conducting research at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center on wound healing after spinal cord injury and is a crew chief and external operations director with CWRU Emergency Medical Services (EMS). 

“I will undoubtedly carry with me the skills of leadership, teamwork and communication from my work with CWRU EMS and Food Recovery Network, and I will certainly seek a career in which I can continue to help others,” she says.

At CWRU, you’ll pair your ambitions with service and experience, Owen. Your resume, your community and your future self will thank you for it.
