FIGHT Partnership with Bridging the Gaps

Bridging the Gaps

Every Summer, FIGHT hosts student interns from the Bridging the Gaps (BTG) program for six weeks. These interns work on a variety of projects including designing and implementing a client satisfaction survey and working on our annual FIGHT Stories project. This year, FIGHT’s Hepatitis C team and Development and Communications team hosted BTG interns. Two of FIGHT’s 2017 BTG interns were entered into a photo competition, taking first and second places for their schools. Congrats to all of our hard-working BTG interns!

Stay tuned for more information on the 2017 FIGHT Stories project and the role our BTG interns played in bringing the project to life.
