High School Girls in Science: Junior Summer Associate PositiondiaTribe is currently seeking female high school students interested in pursuing STEM and medical and journalism careers to apply to our Junior Summer Associate program. The Junior Associate position is ideal for high school students with an interest in medicine, science, writing, and public health. A desire to learn more about healthcare, data science, media, and/or health policy is very appealing to us. Junior Associates spend four weeks at diaTribe; dates are still being set for 2019, and July 1 – July 26 is likely. Girls who are interested should review the attached brochure and that is very fast and easy to fill out! Junior Summer Associates will also have the chance to closely work with Associates at Close Concerns, a healthcare information company focused on improving patient outcomes by making everyone smarter about diabetes and obesity — see the Meet the Team page here.
