Health Promotion Intern
|Location:||US - MD - Baltimore|
|Employee Category:||Part Time|
BACKGROUND : The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. At work in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home. Domestically, our 22 offices across the U.S. ensure new arrivals have food, shelter, and clothing, and work with refugees to help them gain self-sufficiency.
SCOPE OF WORK :
Access to health care is an essential component in the resettlement process in the United States as health is a critical component of work, school, family life, and the process of acculturation. Newly-arrived refugee and asylee populations often have prevalent health conditions and concerns which can be effectively addressed through preventative health measures. The Health Promotion Intern will play the vital role of supporting the Public Health Advocate in planning, implementing and evaluating consistent, comprehensive, and culturally-appropriate health education workshops for refugee and asylee clients.
