2022 MERIT Community Health Internship Summer Associate
The Medical Education Resources Initiative for Teens (MERIT) Health Leadership Academy is a non-profit organization that works with low-income, first-generation high school students pursuing careers in STEM/health professions. MERIT is dedicated to educating and empowering Baltimore City high school students to become health professionals and change agents who advance equity. MERIT scholars cultivate a deep understanding of their individual roles in solving health disparities through three years of intensive programming including weekly Saturday sessions, summer internships, and longitudinal mentoring. Scholars graduate with a burning passion for achieving health equity, a clear vision of how to reach their goals, a toolkit of knowledge and skills necessary for earning undergraduate and graduate degrees, and a close-knit community of peers and mentors who will continue to work collaboratively toward their collective goal of becoming community change agents. MERIT is seeking a “CHI Teaching Assistant” who will support summer programming.
