Marissa Birzon (Columbus Chamber of Commerce)
“The Columbus Chamber of Commerce does an excellent job of communication, creating relationships and building a stronger economy in Columbus. I want to better understand what drives a consumer to a platform or decision and see what appeals to different consumers. This internship will allow me to acquire hands-on work experience that will help me improve my communication and leadership skills.”
Taylor Lisevick is working with St. Francis Hospital - Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute this summer.
“My project will be in pain management in chronic pain patients, specifically looking into alternative methods for pain control in patients who are chronic users of opioids. I am most excited to learn about the alternative medications and analgesics for patients who fall under this category while hopefully discovering a better multimodal pain management plan for future use!” - Taylor Lisevick
Selina Vickery also will be gaining valuable internship experience this summer, working with The James as a Pelotonia fellow.
"I'm very excited to begin my journey as a Pelotonia Fellow this summer and to build upon the mentorship and experience I've had. Our project is on the relationships between chemotherapy, anxiety, and exercise, and we are eager to get to work!" - Selina Vickery
“My trip to Costa Rica was absolutely incredible. We had the opportunity to not only do service within the communities, but also do many fun activities like zip-lining and a catamaran tour. Experiencing the culture and embracing the children through sports was such an amazing opportunity. I am so grateful to have had the chance to explore another country and their culture. I was able to make great friendships and learn some new things about myself as well.” - Izzy Rodriguez
