Policies and strategies and data….oh my!
We’re looking for 2 grad student interns to join our team this summer. One intern will conduct an assessment of city-adopted goals and strategies to create healthy, equitable communities in San Mateo County. The other will analyze data to uncover socio-demographic characteristics and how these trends have impacted health overall. Know someone who would be a great fit? Applications are due February 29.
