Subject: 2015 CDC Funded Internships

Description:
We are pleased to announce three CDC funded internships available this coming
summer.

Internship #1

The MCHC/RISE-UP Program is a 10-week summer program for undergraduates in
their junior and senior year, and recent baccalaureate degree students
(within 12 months of MCHC/RISE-UP program orientation) who are interested in
learning more about preventing health disparities.   Public health
experiences offered to scholars are:

Clinical/Community: Scholars rotate through clinical experiences provided by
Maternal and Child Health disciplines (pediatrics, psychiatry, neurology,
physiatrist, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nutrition, social work,
psychology, speech/language, special education and nursing) (Kennedy Krieger
Institute only). In addition, scholars will have planned experiences in
providing community-based multi-level health care and support systems for
underserved groups.
Community Engagement and Advocacy: Scholars work with professionals in the
University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Public Health
and related systems on the formation, implementation and evaluation of health
care and disability legislation, regulations and practice guidelines. The
critical role of engaging underrepresented communities in shaping responsive
systems of care receives a special emphasis.
Research: Scholars work with research mentors on a wide range of public
health prevention, treatment and epidemiological studies. Scholars receive
training in conducting community-based participatory research, which engages
communities that are currently underserved by mainstream systems.

A $3,500 stipend is provided to all program participants.  Housing and
round-trip travel is available for out-of-state participants.
