Emily Spitzer Internship
The National Health Law Program’s Emily Spitzer Internship is developing the next generation of public interest health rights advocates. The paid internship, created in honor of former Executive Director Emily Spitzer, enables talented law students to spend a summer with the National Health Law Program, learning from its legal and policy experts, and gaining invaluable insight into the challenges of public interest advocacy. Through the Emily Spitzer Internship we are providing the tools for future generations of public interest lawyers and policy advocates to protect and further the health and civil rights of all people.
The Emily Spitzer Internship allows us to provide law students from law schools from all parts of the country with annual summer positions in each of our three offices – Washington, Los Angeles, and Chapel Hill. The National Health Law Program is committed to cultivating an environment that empowers an exceptional and diverse staff and to advancing health equity in our substantive work. We welcome applicants who represent that diversity and who will contribute to our equity journey, including people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ individuals.
We invite you to contribute to the Emily Spitzer Internship – to join us in providing for the long-term success of our future health advocates.
Open Horizon Health Justice Internship
The Open Horizon Health Justice internship enables talented law students to spend a summer with the National Health Law Program, learning from its legal and policy experts and gaining invaluable insight into the challenges and possibilities of public interest advocacy. Through the Open Horizon Health Justice internships, we are developing the next generation of public interest health rights advocates and providing experiential learning opportunities while also providing valuable support to NHeLP’s staff in their important work.
This paid internship is funded by Open Horizon, a foundation dedicated to leveling the playing field. Through policy advocacy, educational opportunities, and support for programs that open possibilities to those who would not otherwise have them, Open Horizon seeks to improve lives, expand learning, and develop leadership skills. Their vision is of a world where an open horizon is available, and access to education and economic opportunity, as well as health justice, are within reach.
The National Health Law Program’s Communications Internship, now in its sixth year, aims to familiarize students with the vital work of nonprofit communications advocacy. Communications interns join NHeLP’s committed team of advocates working to strengthen and expand health care access. Participants in this internship work closely with the Communications Team to amplify NHeLP’s voice and increase visibility of our work. Interns will learn about the health law and policy issues we address, enabling effective communication about our initiatives and emerging health advocacy trends.
Internship projects include supporting the Communications Team with social media management, media outreach, tracking media coverage, graphic design, video and content creation, messaging, and other projects as needed.
