Center for Science in the Public Interest

CSPI was started in 1971 by three scientists who saw the need for an organization to evaluate the effects of science and technology on society and to promote national policies responsive to consumers' interests. CSPI focuses primarily on health and nutrition issues, disclosing deceptive marketing practices, dangerous food additives or contaminants, and flawed science propagated by profits. Findings are communicated in press interviews and a variety of educational materials, which include reports, books, posters, software, videos, and the Center's Nutrition Action Healthletter.

CSPI offers internships for a small number of qualified students in undergraduate, graduate, law, and medical schools each summer and during the school year. We also consider post graduates. Applications are considered on a rolling basis until all positions have been filled. Please note the application review periods:

1. A cover letter indicating issues of interest, future plans, and dates of availability.

2. A résumé. Experience with advocacy groups is advantageous.

CDPH Immunization Branch VIP Program

The Volunteer Intern Professional (VIP) Program, based in the Immunization Branch* of the California Department of Public Health in Richmond, welcomes and accommodates volunteers, interns and professionals to work side by side with state staff on research projects, administrative tasks, and other duties.

Interns are typically enrolled in public health, health sciences, medical or related programs. Applications are received and reviewed on an ongoing basis, and intern placements are filled as needed.

Health Communication and Media Partnerships Internships, Kaiser Family Foundation

The Kaiser Family Foundation, a non-profit organization, is a leader in health policy analysis, polling and survey research, health journalism, and communication, dedicated to filling the need for trusted information on national health issues. The Foundation serves as a non-partisan source of facts, information, and analysis for policymakers, the media, the health care community, and the public. The Health Communication & Media Partnerships (HCMP) program partners with public and private sector organizations to develop multi-faceted public information campaigns on HIV/AIDS and related pressing health issues.

HCMP is seeking an intern to support its work with the creative development and distribution of Greater Than AIDS, a leading national public information initiative established and run by the Foundation. This position is available beginning September 2014 for up to four months with a possibility of extension beyond that. An hourly stipend and/or course credit will be provided.

Greater Than AIDS is supported by a broad cross-section of public and private sector partners—including major media and other corporate allies, state and local health departments, foundations, national leadership organizations, AIDS service and community groups, among others—united in response to AIDS in America. Through targeted campaigns and community outreach, Greater Than AIDS and its partners work to increase knowledge, reduce stigma and promote actions to stem the spread of HIV. While national in scope, Greater Than AIDS focuses on communities and populations most affected.

General responsibilities of the position may include transcribing and organizing creative content, performing research on special projects, preparing materials for events and conferences, and managing requests for campaign materials. The intern will also be responsible for participating in database maintenance, outreach, and event planning and coordination. Specific responsibilities will vary depending on the work of the team.

This internship will provide an opportunity to develop a significant level of understanding about social marketing and media specifically in the field of sexual health, while working as part of a small team on a major initiative within the Foundation.
