Four master’s and doctoral students are working on research projects with leading local organizations via the Ohio Means Internships & Co-ops Program.  Lauren Birmingham, MA ’10, BBA ’09, BA ‘09, is one of those students, working with Summa Health System to examine the incidence of emergency department (ED) visits to identify frequent users and learn how to best serve them.

Thanks to a new grant program from the Ohio Board of Regents, the college is creating a graduate student co-op program with local organizations in need of health research assistance.  Partners will utilize master’s or doctoral students for 20 hours weekly for a period of at least one year, while students continue their academic programs.  The Ohio Means Internships & Co-op
