UEPI's Summer Public Health Internship wraps up a 4th successful year!


Three interns spent 10-weeks this summer learning by doing at health organizations in Los Angeles. Anna Warrick (2017, UEP) worked on care coordination and resource finding at ChapCare, a community health center in Pasadena; Jessica Shiosaki (2018, Biochemistry) interned with the Client Services Department at Foothill Unity Center where she worked with case managers to serve the social service and health needs of low-income community members, and plan for back to school events; and Eva Townsend (2018, Spanish major) interned at the MEND (Meet Each Need with Dignity) Clinic. One of her projects was to develop health education bulletin boards in the clinic waiting room. Eva (right) is pictured next to the boards with CSUN public health intern Kaitlin Day (left). Says Elizabeth Diaz, Assistant Clinic Manager, "It is because of interns like Eva and Kaitlin that the MEND Clinic is able to offer services to uninsured and under-served residents."
