Students with Diabetes launches internship program

Posted on September 12, 2012 by The Patterson Foundation

When Nicole Johnson was a young adult, there weren't opportunities to help students with Type 1 diabetes imagine a professional future. Today, as the executive director of Bringing Science Home, she plans to change that.

A partnership between USF Health and The Patterson Foundation, Bringing Science Home helps people with chronic conditions live optimistically. Johnson and her team launched the Students with Diabetes Internship Program to help yound adults with Type 1 diabetes learn about the options and many careers in diabetes. 

The goal is create a population of yound adults with diabetes who match their passion for making a difference with skils learned in internship settings to set them up to make a difference in diabetes worldwide.

Internships currently available and in development include working with EOS Health, Tandem, Novo Nordisk JDRF and more.
