National Community Health sets KP-s strategy to improve health and conditions for health for the 65 million people living in the communities that we serve around the country. Our strategy is three-fold, seeking to ensure health access both through programs at KP and partnerships with safety net providers; to improve conditions for health and equity; and to advance the future of community health through technology and social innovations.

Intern Project Overview: Our approach to improve conditions for health and equity includes a particular focus on creating economic opportunity in our communities through workforce development and job creation, small business growth, and community investment. In particular, we are working to deepen our efforts to maximize the positive community impacts from our business activities like hiring, purchasing, building facilities, and investing. The intern will support this strategic effort, working in partnership with a cross-functional taskforce representing core business departments. This Project offers an exciting opportunity to gain exposure to Kaiser Permanente business operations, from the lens of community impact and population health.
