Summer Internship

When the semester ends many of us can enjoy the month of May but numerous summer internship opportunities begin in June!  This summer I am doing an internship with the Bridging the Gaps program.  Bridging the Gaps is described as "a community-based summer internship program that helps students gain a broader understanding of the factors that affect health in underserved and economically disadvantaged communities. The internship offers students in the health and social services fields an opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration."  There are 200 students participating from Philadelphia's many schools like Temple Medical School, Drexel, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and students from USciences had the opportunity to participate as well!  So far it has been really rewarding to work with nonprofit community partners and I am learning a lot about the city of Philadelphia!
