Health Outreach, Promotion, and Education (HOPE) has a unique and collaborative relationship with the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, providing a number of academic opportunities for students. We also have opportunities for students interested in Eta Sigma Gamma, the national Health Science/Health Education honor society.
HOPE Internships and Practicums
HOPE is an internship and practicum site for Public Health and other majors. Interested students must make an appointment to discuss possible placements with Francesca M. Maresca, Director of HOPE, or Mark Cruz, Health Education Specialist. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that a HOPE placement meets their program requirements and to complete all necessary paperwork.
Assessing Student Interest in Mental Health Tele-Health
More and more companies are creating apps and web-based tools for students to help manage emotional wellness, assess mental health, build resilience and more. But what do students really think about these tools? Would they use them? Do they have a sense that they would be effective? This project would involve assessing current students’ attitudes, perceptions and possible interest in tele-health options related to mental health. The intern will research tele-health options, recruit for focus groups, facilitate them and analyze the results to make potential recommendations related to tele-health. Some nights will be required.
Interested candidates should email their resume and cover letter to Francesca M. Maresca, Director of HOPE, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for applications: December 6, 2019
