Office Description

Health is created by people and communities. That’s why the Office of Health Promotion works with students and university offices to build a healthier Emory. OHP provides students with information and tools they can use to increase their well-being. We also work on big picture things like policies and prevention programs that will make Emory a healthier and more equitable place. Our priority initiatives include the Respect Program, which focuses on sexual violence prevention and survivor support; Flourish Emory, which teaches skills for resiliency and happiness; alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse prevention, and promoting sexual health.

Our vision is that every Emory student will flourish on a healthy campus.

Summer internships in the Office of Health Promotion provide students the opportunity to join a cohort of peers to learn more about health promotion and student affairs as well as the chance to work independently on a meaningful project. Interns will discuss common readings from the fields of public health and health promotion. Group meetings will provide support to students as they develop their individual projects.

Schedule requirements/preferences: Approx. 15-20 hours per week. Scheduling at student/supervisor discretion. Weekly/biweekly individual supervision. Attendance at collaborative team meetings. Most work completed independently and off-site.

Position Type: Part-time, Unpaid
