We Started 3 Summer Internship Programs This Week!
Doris Duke Foundation Interns
It's been a summer full of challenges and readjustments as COVID-19 has caused us to find creative ways to support our communities and continue the health science programs that are now more important than ever. On July 13th, we started our Doris Duke Foundation’s clinical research, Health Careers Opportunity Program's (HCOP) Summer Academy college prep and enrichment, and Brooklyn Health Disparities Center's (BHDC) community research internship – all remotely! AAIUH’s summer programs will run from mid-July to mid-August, serve 85 students, and provide much-needed stipends ranging from $500-$3,000. Studies will focus on a variety of subjects including math, biology, writing, health career exploration, and community-based research topics such as males’ attitude towards breastfeeding, and knowledge and attitudes towards HIV and Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or Prep). The future looks bright for these young students!
