Student Paid Research Work

Dr. Sloane and Dr. Lewis are hiring students to support evaluation activities for a Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC) funded public health and planning project (REACH Demonstration Project).

About the project:
The REACH demonstration project is focused on addressing hypertension and obesity in South LA through improved identification and management of at-risk populations. Project interventions include clinical systems improvements, increased access to physical activity and nutrition programs on school campuses, and community plan advocacy around public health.

About the team and work:

Students on our team work together to support the evaluation activities. Responsibilities include data collection through various methods including field observation, focus groups, surveys, interviews and meeting notes, as well as data cleaning and data analysis.

The majority of data collection will happen at LAUSD school sites. There is a special need for students who are available during weekday afternoons between the hours of 2pm and 6pm, and able to commit at least 10 hours per week.
Candidates should have a general interest in urban planning, public health and health equity issues, data-driven research, data collection and analysis. Must be comfortable interacting with community members for data collection efforts. Bilingual Spanish speakers are especially encouraged to apply.

Positions start January 2015 and have the potential to continue through September 2015.

Please send your cover letter, resume and Spring schedule of availability to Tahirah Farris at by Friday, December 5th.
