Hello! My name is Colleen Bernard and I am a junior majoring in Health Management and Policy with a French minor. I transferred into the major my sophomore year after taking a class on U.S. health care systems. Learning about the strengths and weaknesses of our health model inspired me to pursue a future career in the field. I hope that by understanding the intricacies of our system, I will one day be able to work to improve it. I am particularly interested in promoting health equity and bridging gaps in care between different segments of the population. I am excited to work with the IHPP as an intern so that I may gain knowledge, experience, and help to improve the health of New Hampshire residents!
