HPW Student Internship Experience – Analese Grimm 16′
Interning at Interra Health was an interesting experience because I got to delve into a few different areas of the company. My time was split between in office projects and conducting on site health screens at our clients’ locations. The health screening process involved traveling to various sites for our clients and measuring the health of their employees. Our health screens included evaluating blood pressure, cholesterol levels, body composition, and testing for tobacco use at certain companies. he office based projects were mainly focused on integrating and analyzing the health information Interra collected through our health screening process. I also had the opportunity to get involved with marketing initiatives like writing posts for our wellness blog and developing our monthly newsletters. Additionally I learned about Interra’s coaching program and even had some training in various coaching techniques from one of our on site wellness coaches.
