Welcome to Our Summer Interns

Dianne Halbert - Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Everyone at AHECSW would like to introduce our two summer interns: Cody and Emily. They will be helping us for the next four weeks with the High School Healthcare Exposure Camp and the Middle School Healthcare Exploration Camp. There are brief bios of our summer interns below. This year our summer camps will dive into the five senses: vision, touch, hearing, smell, and taste. We will have fun playing with our taste buds, going through obstacle courses with inverted vision googles, and confusing our senses. The high school campers will spend the last three days of camp at Camp Kellogg, where they will learn about wilderness first aid and safety. Stay tuned for our next blog on how all the camps went.

Cody Early is a Roseburg-native who is currently attending George Fox University and pursing a Bachelor’s of Science degree in biology. He is interested in working as a medical lab scientists or an optometrist. His favorite movies are Shawshank Redemption and any Star Was movie, and his favorite musical artists are Green Day and Florida Georgia Line. In his free time, he enjoys basketball, golf, camping, hiking, and chatting with friends and family. When asked what he enjoys most about this summer intern position, Cody said “I hope to help students in my community nurture their passion for healthcare just like so many mentors have done for me. I also look forward to having lots of fun along the way.”

 

 

 

 Emily Swanson is also a Roseburg native who is currently attending Oregon State University and pursing a Bachelor’s of Science degree in biology. Emily has worked with our camps before. She is interested in working as a primary care physician or a pediatrician. Her favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast, and her favorite musical artist is Bruno Mars. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with friends, baking, playing the saxophone, hiking, and spending time outdoors. When asked what she enjoys about the summer intern position, Emily said, “I had a blast last year helping run the camps and seeing the students get excited about medicine. I am looking forward to connecting with more students and continuing to share my interest in the medical field with them. I hope that I care encourage these students to pursue what they are passionate about. I am excited to be able to give back to my community while doing something I love!”
