The Children's Environmental Health Network (CEHN) is a national multi-disciplinary organization whose mission is to protect the developing child from environmental health hazards and promote a healthier environment. We can accept two or three Interns and/or Volunteers each semester and during the summer.
Student projects could include: working with staff on education and outreach to targeted communities; working on current policy issues; fundraising research; and outlining plans for new projects. In addition, the assistant will help with general office work. Anyone may apply, but this position is designed for juniors, seniors or graduate students majoring in public health, environmental studies, public or nonprofit administration, public policy, communication/journalism or health sciences. Students will need to contact their school regarding receiving credits.
Since 1992, the Network has helped to establish children's environmental health as a credible and viable field within the research, health care, and policy arenas. For more information about CEHN, visit our home page: http://www.cehn.org
