Back in March, I typed into our internship database: “california health internship.” Little did I know that this would turn out to be an AMAZING summer.
I worked at an Asian health clinic serving primarily patients with no health insurance or only government-aided health insurance – primarily shadowing doctors, helping the clinic fundraise, and learning more about medical care for the underserved. As one of my projects for this summer, I also developed fish guides (based on recommendations from edf.org and tailored to be culturally appropriate to the Chinatown population) as health education materials to be distributed (as printed postcards) out to the patients. Take a look! :P
Also, aside from working, I also had plenty of time (9 weekends!) to explore the Bay Area. I made a list of all the tourist attractions/points of interest that I went to around the Bay area this summer, and the list came out to be 40 locations long :P (way too touristy -____-) but truly, SF Bay is beautiful :)
