In honor of one of our founding members, Harry A. Watson, each year, LLHD selects a student interested in the field of public health to take part in our Harry A. Watson summer internship program. The selected student will gain a well-rounded experience in the field of public health, working with staff in our environmental, communicable disease prevention, and health education departments.
In previous years, the Harry A. Watson internship was an opportunity for high school students to gain exposure to the field of public health. In 2013, we decided to shift our focus to college students with an interest in public health.
Please check back in the spring for updates!
