Stage posté par Pulmonary Hypertension Association
Publié le : 4 déc. 2012
The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) is a fast-growing association of patients, family members and medical professionals committed to maintaining the organization's volunteer spirit and building opportunities for involvement and education. Pulmonary hypertension (PH), a life-threatening illness described as high blood pressure in the lungs, affects people of all ethnic backgrounds and ages.
The Patient Outreach and Services program aims to meet the needs of specific populations within the PHA community. The Patient Outreach and Services Intern will work with PHA staff to develop programs and resources to address special population needs. Specifically, this intern will work with the Manager of Patient Outreach and Services to expand and enhance online and print material offerings for newly diagnosed patients, young adults with PH, caregivers of adult patients, families of children with PH, and PH patients with associated conditions.
We offer both part-time and full-time internships. You will be treated as a respected team member, and our office provides a friendly and welcoming environment. If you would like to design a project that helps you meet your educational goals, we will work with you to achieve this. Interns may also earn college credit. Our office is located in downtown Silver Spring, Md., and is Metro accessible.
Materials should include a cover letter explaining your interest in working for PHA, a resume and a 3-6 page writing sample. Cover letters should be addressed to Kimberley Lamon-Loperfido, Manager of Patient Outreach & Services. Applications are only accepted through PHA's online Internship Application Form (http://www.phassociation.org/internships/apply).
