Prevention Institute E-Alert: February 2, 2016

Now Seeking Graduate Interns to Work With Us

Prevention Institute is now accepting applications for 2016 Graduate Interns. We're looking for graduate students who are committed to improving health, safety and equity through a focus on prevention. Interns will have a chance to grow their skills in using a prevention approach to address health and social issues by working with our organizational teams in violence prevention, injury prevention, mental health, health reform implementation, health equity, and healthy food and physical activity environments. Please spread the word to your colleagues!

Prevention Institute's internship program is for continuing graduate students (masters or doctoral) in public health, social work, public policy, urban planning, and related fields. Internships are paid. We ask summer interns to commit to working 40 hours per week for 10-12 weeks, and those seeking internships during the school year to commit to working a minimum of 15 hours per week.  Our internships provide students with the opportunity to:

•    Apply what they are learning in graduate school by delving deep into a project or set of projects, and;
•    Learn about Prevention Institute, including our unique approach, and how the practice of primary prevention is taking hold across the country.

Applications are due February 18th.

To learn more, including how to apply, please visit our site. Please consider spreading the word by forwarding this announcement to interested candidates and organizations, or sharing with relevant online groups.
