As a growing part of our G.I.F.T.E.D. (Greatness Initiative For Township Educational Development) community project, this pre-Health internship is designed for university undergraduate and postgraduate students aged 18-25 who are pursuing a career in health-related fields. The purpose of the OHS Health Development program is to democratize healthy living, or increase access to healthy choices, by mentoring our G.I.F.T.E.D. students using educational health interventions. Those selected to be part of the OHS Health Development team will engage with various levels of the local community on pressing issues related to community health. These engagements include fieldwork, visitation to local institutions, and seminars aimed at contextualizing your understanding of local determinants of health to promote effective mentorship.
