The Filipino American Community Health Initiative of Chicago (FACHIC) is a collaborative of community, health professional, and academic leaders united to address Filipino health issues in the Chicago area.  The mission of FACHIC is to increase awareness of Filipino health disparities and to implement health interventions and educational programming to improve the health status of the Filipino community.  Among FACHIC’s ongoing projects is the Filipino American Senior Health Assessment (FASHA), a research program that collects and assesses critical information on health issues specifically affecting Filipino American seniors in the Chicago metropolitan area. Preliminary findings from FASHA have been presented regionally including the Minority Health in the Midwest Conference and the Midwest Society of General Internal Medicine Meeting.

FACHIC is seeking one student intern to work with the FACHIC volunteer research staff in data analysis and validation of the Filipino American Senior Health Assessment (FASHA) research project results.  Intern will also assist in planning the Filipino Community Health Forum, an open townhall meeting for the Filipino American community in October 2010.

Ideal students will have knowledge or background in:

-       Epidemiology/Biostatistics
-       Community Health

Experience working with the Filipino and/or Asian community is a plus.

This is a non-paid position which provides valuable experience and is available immediately.
