AHS Welcomes 2022 REACH Interns
We are excited to introduce our 2022 REACH interns: Rachel Chau and Kaitlyn Chin (Kae)!
Rachel Chau (she/her) was born and raised in Oakland. She recently graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor’s in Human Biology and Society on a pre-med track. She is passionate about the intersection between social justice and healthcare, specifically providing culturally competent care to underserved communities.
Kae Chin (she/they) is from Pleasanton, California. She is an undergraduate student studying Human Biology and Asian American Studies at Scripps College. Love to garden/farm, hike, and make art with friends! She is interested in pre-nursing and social justice/community organizing work.
Please join us in welcoming Rachel and Kaitlyn as they begin their journey at AHS!
REACH is a nine-week paid summer internship program offered by AHS for those interested in a career in public health or health-related fields. The program’s goal is to encourage pre-health professionals to choose careers that will focus on the undeserved Asian American community.
Through direct clinical experience, community health advocacy activities, and self-directed projects, REACH will introduce interns to the dynamic environment of a community health center. REACH is a program of the Pipeline Committee, an advocacy group of AHS employees formed in 2006 to address the ongoing need for linguistically and culturally competent health care professionals in our community.
