Health Project Internship Description
Under the leadership of former Senate Majority Leaders Tom Daschle and Bill Frist, BPC’s Health Project is dedicated to bringing together policymakers and industry stakeholders for substantive collaboration in support of creating a more sustainable, accountable and efficient health care system.
Solving our health care system crisis requires an understanding of the sensitive political climate around health reform, and a new level of cooperation between federal and state governments. States urgently need pragmatic, workable solutions to meet the ongoing challenges of our health care system. The Health Project is embarking on a comprehensive review of the challenges confronting states as they deal with delivery, cost, and coverage demands. The project will engage state, federal, business and workforce leaders in thoughtful, bipartisan dialogue, share best practices among states and host roundtable discussions and other public policy events. The project will also establish communication, outreach, and educational activities to convey lessons learned and policy recommendations.
The intern will work with project staff on writing, policy research, event planning, congressional activity and communications tasks. The intern will help support the project’s major initiatives on long-term care reform, delivery system reform and insurance coverage.
