The Center for Public Health and Health Policy Welcomes 2015 Husky Scholars

Each summer, Husky Programs at the Center for Public Health and Health Policy, offer a paid internship for UConn undergraduate students.  Husky Scholars (interns) act as role models and mentors by developing lessons and sharing healthy eating and physical activity messages to participants in underserved areas throughout Connecticut. Interns deliver education to participants across the lifespan using lessons from the Husky Reads, Husky Nutrition and Healthy Aging programs.

Husky Programs have presented at several engagement Symposia and are past recipients of Provost’s Awards for Excellence in Engagement.
