NC Child is seeking an undergraduate or graduate student intern to work directly with the NC KIDS COUNT Project Director to assist in the development of the 2021 North Carolina Child Health Report Card.
The North Carolina Child Health Report Card, issued every two years by the North Carolina Institute of Medicine and NC Child, tracks key indicators of child health and well-being in four areas: Healthy Births, Access to Care, Secure Homes and Neighborhoods, and Health Risk Factors. The report provides data on such health concerns and risk factors as asthma, teen births, infant mortality, poverty, and child deaths.
