The Diversity Summer Internship Program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has an opening for a fall internship (minimum of 10 hours/week) supporting the Day at the Market initiative based in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering and The Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.
The Day at the Market is a multifaceted program of outreach and engagement sponsored by the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore campus. The program takes place at the Northeast Market the first Tuesday as well as every second and last Wednesday of every month. The Northeast Market is where Johns Hopkins meets the community and is an important venue where Johns Hopkins can bridge the disconnect regarding the lack of access to resources and information. Our Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, students and researchers participate in Market Day and use this program as a learning tool for being a better partner with the community, as a dissemination vehicle to return what they have learned to the community, and as a means to deepen interactions with community partners and members. The goals of the initiative include providing patrons with pertinent educational materials, answers to questions from experts, and services or resources that will help them make positive behavioral changes for health.
The internship includes opportunities for translating research, developing health promotion messages and products, while engaging with the local community.
