Intern at the National Women’s Health Network


The Helen Rodriguez-Trias Women’s Health Internship Program seeks to develop the next generation of women’s health activists by providing interns with hands-on experience in women’s health policy and advocacy, membership/fundraising and communications. Becoming an NWHN intern allows you to develop health research skills and explore the worlds of public policy, health education, and feminist organizing. The internship experience is unique. Interns’ contributions are essential to the workings of the NWHN. The NWHN works with students and their colleges/universities to complete the required documentation in order to complete an internship.
