Former Community Health Strategies Intern at American Diabetes Association
almost 2 years ago
I had a variety of day to day operations. Typically, I completed daily administrative tasks such as front desk procedures, dealing with incoming clients, and event preparation. I also managed and input data for databases, volunteer mailing lists, and event invitees using Excel to facilitate the functioning of each program. My work also included posting ADA event advertisements to major NYC [event] sites, radio stations, and university bulletins and designing and distributing floor plans, flyers, and programs for all ADA events and workshops. There are also health fairs that you are expected to attend. I attended health fairs and spoke with the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens community about diabetes prevention and topics such as foot care, eye care, diet, exercise, student/worker rights. I also registered diabetics for events such as walks, fundraisers, and camps. There are also misc. tasks that your boss may require of you based on upcoming tasks. For example, I performed research on and maintained communication with foundations, health care professionals, health clinics, and community leaders to evaluate prospects for medical camps, grants, and leadership dinners.
