International Children's Heart Foundation has two interns this summer.  Alex Novick joined us on May 26 and Anna Ohlrich joined us on June 8.  They will both be with us until August 15.

Alex is a sophomore at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.   She is in the International Studies honors program at UAB and is interested in pursuing international studies at a masters level.   

Anna is a senior biology major following a pre-med track at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.  She will graduate in May 2010, will proceed with a master's degree, and then hopes to enter medical school.

Alex & Anna are assisting with the day to day activities of the foundation, learning about congenital heart defects, sorting and logging in donated medical supplies, assisting with fundraising events, and updating data bases.

Interns are also given the opportunity to travel with our medical teams.  Alex is currently with a team in Odessa, Ukraine and plans to also go to Tegucigalpa, Honduras.  Anna will be joining our team in August to Kemerovo, Russia.
