Spotlight on Sociology Intern Sophie Hewey

sppohie hewey

I interned with Partnership Health Center (PHC) -- a non-profit clinic with a mission to meet the immediate health needs of community members, while simultaneously working to combat the systemic injustices that create and perpetuate poor health outcomes. Not only was I provided the opportunity to work with a successful organization, but I was also fortunate to be supervised, mentored and motivated by some incredible staff members. The internship consisted of utilizing my sociological knowledge to implement a study that could be used for strategic planning, tabling at a community conversation about affordable housing, analyzing the results of a survey that would assist PHC in establishing a clinic at the Missoula Food Bank and Community Center, attending meetings with partner organizations, learning the ropes of grant writing, and more! This internship provided an inspiring and enjoyable learning experience, as well as valuable tools that I can carry into my future endeavors.
