Meet the Spring 2015 Interns
The PRCHN is pleased to have six research interns in the office during spring 2015. Each of these students brings fresh energy and perspective to the center. In return, they are each gaining real-world experience in data collection through YRBS, collecting data for the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) study, as well as working on aspects of a multi-year, multi-level family and school intervention through the IMPACT study. Meet our spring interns below.










Interns Abigail Silvester (left) and Practicum Student Selam Shah are conducting height and weight measurements of We Run This City teams as part of the IMPACT study. They are also assisting with data collection for the REACH study. In addition, Selam assisted with data collection for the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).










PRCHN interns Ayanna Smith (left) and Sahil Bharwani are working on a REACH data collection project that involves assessing physical activity spaces and water availability in all Cleveland Municipal School District buildings. They will be observing nearly 100 schools this spring on a four-person team that also includes Abby and Selam.
