Position Description: The School-Based Heath Alliance (the Alliance) seeks a talented and motivated intern with an interest in health care economics and children’s health. The intern will conduct an extensive review of the literature on return of investment in key children’s health areas (e.g. teen pregnancy, STD prevention and screening, substance use prevention, obesity prevention, oral health, asthma management, vision services). The intern will address two research questions per health content area: 1. What is the return on investment (ROI) (e.g. savings per prevention dollar invested)? 2. Who is the beneficiary of the ROI (e.g. health care system, education system, juvenile justice system, taxpayers)? Then the intern will develop a 1) report, 2) brief summary, and 3) power point presentation describing how school-based health care (SBHC) programs can deliver these savings to these systems because of the services they provide to children and adolescents.

Responsibilities: The intern will: • Conduct extensive literature review of ROI related articles • Develop a written report of findings • Develop an accompanying brief summary table of findings • Develop accompanying power point slides of findings

Qualifications: • Pursuing graduate degree or recent graduate in health policy, public policy, health economics, or other related field • Experience conducting literature reviews • Excellent oral, written, and communication/presentation skills • Ability to start January 2018

Organization Description: The Alliance was founded in 1995 and is the national voice for school-based health care (SBHC) programs. SBHC programs are health centers that provide comprehensive care to predominantly underserved children and adolescents in a setting that is trusted, familiar, and immediately accessible: their school. SBHC programs provide care – primary health, behavioral health and counseling, family outreach, and chronic illness management – without concern for the student’s ability to pay. The Alliance advocates for national, state and local policies, programs, and funding to expand and strengthen SBHC programs, while also supporting the movement with training and technical assistance.
