Hello! My name is Rebecca McDermott and I am thrilled to be working as an intern alongside Judy Levy and the Long Term Care Coalition, as well as the Senior Advisory Coalition, here at Iona Senior Services. I am originally from the Boston area, but currently live in D.C where I am a junior at American University. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Health, and after graduation, I hope to earn my Masters in Public Health. My goal is to pursue a career in health services administration or healthcare policy. As a new intern, I am most excited to be accompanying Judy to meetings and learning about the functions of a city government. I am also deeply committed to the goals and missions of the LTC and SAC and hope that my experience here can benefit these two innovative coalitions. Stay tuned to the LTC blog and Twitter account, as I will also be contributing to them from now until mid-December!
