The Bernard and Kathleen Beazley Summer Internship Program

OHA announced its first formal internship program at the 2012 Pre-Gala Reception at Navy Pier on February 22.  Funded by the late couple’s planned gift to Oral Health America, the opportunity provides a unique look into the world of public health dentistry and oral health leadership for two rising senior undergraduate students each summer since May 2012. The 12-week paid internship experience allows the student to be extensively involved in OHA’s work to improve the oral health of vulnerable Americans across the entire spectrum of life. By working on specific research projects and communications initiatives, the intern will meet dozens of leaders in the oral health world in addition to making a meaningful impact on OHA’s programs and the people we serve. Click on the flyer above to read more about the Beazley Summer Internship Program.

What Our Interns Say About OHA

“Out of all the internships to which I applied, OHA appealed to me the most. OHA provides the unique opportunity to combine my two passions in life: dentistry and public health. After discovering I would be able to help reduce dental health disparities by promoting awareness about good oral health, I knew this was the internship for me.” Jennifer Pan, Senior at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health 2012 Beazley Summer Intern “My experience as an intern with OHA has shaped and inspired my future initiative and involvement in the dental world.” Allyson Supowitz, Spring 2011 Intern Current OHA Programs and Communications Coordinator “My internship with OHA was hands-down one of the best decisions I’ve ever made—for my future career, my personal growth, and for the benefit of my community. As I head to dental school in August, I know that my understanding of the dental industry and connections to oral health leaders will benefit me for the rest of my life.” Ben Anders, Summer 2010 Intern and 2011-2012 OHA Programs and Communications Coordinator University of North Carolina School of Dentistry Class of 2016
