Job with AmeriCorps Improving Health Throughout Indiana

Improving Health Throughout Indiana (IHTI) is a partnership of the School of HPER Department of Applied Health Science and the Indiana State Department of Health, and it places community members as well as students (both undergraduate and graduate) in over thirty different health-related facilities in Indianapolis and Bloomington to work in various health promotion capacities.

We have one position available at this time, with the Indiana State Department of Health State Data Center in Indianapolis, that has an emphasis in public relations and also includes policy research. The position extends from June through December and volunteers are paid a $4,300 living stipend for their time and an $1800 education award upon completion of their service. Since this position does not require a health background, it seemed fitting to open it up to students of public relations and other communication specialties.
