Position Summary:

The Kaiser Family Foundation, a non-profit organization, is a leader in health policy analysis, polling and survey research, health journalism, and communication, dedicated to filling the need for trusted information on national health issues. The Foundation serves as a non-partisan source of facts, information, and analysis for policymakers, the media, the health care community, and the public.

The Health Communication & Media Partnerships (HCMP) program partners with public and private sector organizations to develop multi-faceted public information campaigns on HIV/AIDS and related pressing health issues.

Based in Menlo Park, CA, HCMP is seeking an intern to support its work with the creative development and digital distribution of Greater Than AIDS, a leading national public information initiative established and run by the Foundation.

Greater Than AIDS is supported by a broad cross-section of public and private sector partners—including major media and other corporate allies, state and local health departments, foundations, national leadership organizations, AIDS service and community groups, among others—united in response to AIDS in America. Through targeted campaigns and community outreach, Greater Than AIDS and its partners work to increase knowledge, reduce stigma and promote actions to stem the spread of HIV. While national in scope, Greater Than AIDS focuses on communities and populations most affected.

General responsibilities of the position may include curating social media content for multiple platforms, monitoring and summarizing top news stories from key partners, conducting research on current trends in social media and generally supporting the day-to-day digital work of HCMP. The intern may also assist with transcribing, celebrity outreach, and support other HCMP team activities as needed.

This internship will provide an opportunity to develop a significant level of understanding about social marketing and media specifically in the field of sexual health, while working as part of a small team on a major initiative within the Foundation.

Desired Skills and Experience:

• College undergraduate students preferred
• Interest and experience with social media, including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram
• Excellent communication and organizational skills
• Attention to detail and excellent research skills
• Experience with Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel
