Get Involved

There are so many ways to get involved with UHI’s exciting work! Whether you are a researcher, community leader, member of a private or public organization, student, work full-time, or are at any other life stage, the Urban Health Initiative wants to hear from you!

  1. All students and community members interested in learning more about UHI’s volunteer and intern opportunities should add themselves to our mailing list.
  2. Once you have done so, please contact Dr. Carolyn Aidman, Associate Director, at to let her know you are interested in working with UHI. You will receive a response from either Dr. Aidman or our Volunteer Manager.

UHI is unique in that we rely on YOU (our volunteers) to make the impact on health disparities. This isn't just theory; this is application! Working with real communities and people is very rewarding, but comes with a lot of responsibility. As such, getting involved can be a relatively long process compared to other volunteer/intern opportunities, but this is necessary in order to ensure our volunteer team is qualified to represent UHI and Emory. We are seeking people (anyone, not just students) who are leaders, learners, and go-getters with entrepreneurial spirits.
