ETR extends an enthusiastic welcome to this year’s Kirby Summer Interns. Monica Sun and William Spatafora both hail from the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine at Tulane University. They will be spending the summer working directly with ETR researchers, gathering and analyzing data. Each will co-author a paper for submission to a professional journal.

One of the finest moments for me with ETR’s Kirby Summer Interns last year was the time one of them said, “I love being an intern at ETR! I still can’t believe I get to be here. I have friends doing internships where they just go and sit in meetings, or they do filing. I am doing real work here. I’m analyzing data. I’m contributing to a manuscript. I am learning how to be a stronger professional. This is amazing.”
I’m delighted this young woman had such a positive experience here. Her robust praise relates directly to the commitment of ETR’s staff to collaboration and mutual support. Our research group—from senior scientists to newly hired research assistants—stepped up to welcome and engage our interns. These students became a vital part of our workforce during their three months here.
This reflects a larger commitment ETR feels to the importance of supporting students and young professionals in the health education and research arena.

Brittany Chambers, MPH, one of ETR’s Kirby Summer Interns for 2014, brings with her a powerful combination of personal experience, educational achievement and commitment to the field. Our researchers are looking forward to working with her over the next few months.
Brittany met recently with Newsletter Editor Marcia Quackenbush to talk about her background, her vision and what she hopes to accomplish both in her internship this summer, and in her professional career. Here’s a report on their conversation.

Brittany Nielsen, one of ETR’s Kirby Summer Interns for 2014, obtained her undergraduate degree at University of California, Berkeley, with a double major in molecular and cell biology and religious studies. She is currently pursuing her Master’s in Public Health at Brigham Young University, as part of a small program that emphasizes the science and practice of health promotion.
Brittany will be spending the summer working closely with ETR’s research team. She took a few minutes on her first day here to talk with Newsletter Editor Marcia Quackenbush. Here’s a report on their conversation.
