7 Weeks with GHF

Meet our new intern Victoria!

VictoriaAs the newest member of GHF, I am excited to spend the next seven weeks with the GHF team as they work to bridge the coverage gap, improve health insurance literacy, and reduce health disparities in the state of Georgia. This internship will not only provide an amazing experience to learn more about consumer health care issues, but it will allow me to pursue a passion of mine,  helping people to improve their health. During my time here I will assist in conducting outreach and education and engage in health care policy advocacy during the legislative session.

Interning at GHF isn’t just an opportunity to learn about health care issues in Georgia. I am looking forward to applying and use all of the knowledge and skills I gain here in my future career and in my civic life. I hope to learn more about health policies and programs and their impact on Georgians, how to build sustainable coalitions, and how to create and improve media messages. I also look forward to learning how to brainstorm and implement new ways to do community outreach. This internship will serve as part of my last semester at the State University of New York at Potsdam, providing me with a Bachelors degree in both Community Health and French. After graduation I hope to pursue a career  in health policy advocacy, recreational therapy, international health education, being an entrepreneur on health topics, or nutrition education. This internship will be another step towards my future career. I look forward to working with all of you during my time at GHF.
