Iowa Public Health Association/Iowa Immunizes Grassroots Advocacy Intern
The Grassroots Advocacy Outreach Intern will assist in growing the grassroots advocacy component of Iowa Public Health Association and the Iowa Immunizes coalition. This entails staffing a booth at health fairs, community events, and conference exhibits and preparing educational and promotional materials. These events are held on the weekends and some weekday evenings. The Grassroots Advocacy Intern will also manage IPHA’s summer public health town halls. This entails scheduling visits between members and Iowa’s congressional
delegation, and in-district meetings with Iowa state legislators; preparing materials to be used during the meetings; promoting the meetings to the membership; and, writing a summary report of each meeting.
We estimate that this internship will be 10 hours/week, but there may be some weeks that require more and some less. Total hours and length of internship are flexible. Access to personal transportation and the ability to physically transport exhibit booth materials are required. Mileage for events outside of the Des Moines metro is reimbursable.
