Lombardi DEI Office Internship Work Exposure

Posted in DEI News

Lombardi DEI Office Intern, Lauren Massie, presented a poster on April 12th showing her work to attendees including School of Health Dean Christopher King, PhD, FACHE;  Professor Bernard Horak, PhD, FACHE, CPHQ, and Lombardi DEI Associate Director, Kristi Graves, PhD.

Lauren joined us for the final year of her BA in Healthcare Management and Policy at Georgetown University. Lauren offered valuable contributions to the design of the 2024 Lombardi Landscape Diversity Survey, which will be launched soon.  Lauren will be pursuing her Masters in Health Policy at Johns Hopkins University in the fall.

This internship allowed me to embrace and enjoy supporting the diversity of an organization. I enhanced my research skills in investigating best practices for conducting DEI surveys and deciding on demographic questions. I also participated in stakeholder meetings and made connections about the importance of DEI work at Lombardi.

We’re excited that Lauren’s future goals may continue her contributions to the cancer field:

I hope to work towards enacting health policies that encourage the provision of quality end-of-life care to patients that respects their preferences and values. This includes patients who have conditions such as cancer and may be facing the hardships involved with end-of-life decision making.”
