Class of 2022
We are keen to help transform the prospects of, and provide opportunities for, early career Black people in the UK to flourish in their future health data science careers. Here you can meet the team of Interns and Host Organisations working together through our 2022 Health Data Science Black Internship Programme.
Ribka Aschalew, 2022 Health Data Science Black Internship Programme Intern at The Health Foundation, said:
“I have a huge passion for science and technology, with a particular interest in data and Artificial Intelligence. Through HDR UK’s internship programme, I look forward to gaining invaluable insights into how data science is harnessed in the health sector, and to developing my skills as an analyst and researcher.”
