Summer Internships in Maternal Health
Following the success of our winter session course Field Experience in Maternal Health, the Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF) is supporting ten graduate students at the Harvard School of Public Health as they apply their skills and knowledge to maternal health issues through experiences with MHTF partner organizations. Selected students are individually paired with partner organizations based on the needs of the host organizations and the students’ skills. These placements will last for two to three months over summer 2013 and may involve collecting data, visiting sites, conducting interviews, and other activities that are at the core of research and program implementation in the field of maternal health.
Partners and students participating in this summer’s internship program include:
- IDEAS (Ethiopia) – Mahader Tamene
- National Health Sector Support Program (Nepal) – Corrina Moucheraud
- The Population Council (Bangladesh) – Eric Dunipace and Christine Simon
- The Population Council (Kenya) – Nora Miller and Claire Watt
- Riders for Health (The Gambia) – Sara Lubetsky and Rachel Whelan
- Statens Serum Institut (Denmark) – Brittany Charlton
- University of Chile Institute of Nutrition and Food Technology (Chile) – Michael Close
Please note: This program is only open to students who are currently enrolled at Harvard School of Public Health and are in good standing with the school at the time of the internship. For more information, please contact the project coordinator Elizabeth Claise (firstname.lastname@example.org).
