The Our Voice Team

Thanks to our 2018 Summer interns!

Every year – and especially in the summer – our work is supported by stellar undergraduate interns. Our 2018 summer interns were:

She leads an interdiscplinary research team aimed at creating cutting-edge behavioral and technological programs promoting the healthy lifestyles necessary for living long and productive lives. Her teams' borderless health promotion solutions seek to create health programs that break down barriers related to education, literacy, language, and computer knowledge and access.

Our Voice Impact

"This experience has changed my life.  I see inadequacies everywhere I go as it relates to pedestrian access and safety.  I even stop [at] construction sites to remind them to be considerate of the handicapped in our community.  Thank you all so much for this awareness and empowerment to require change."
