This is 4th year for Sewa Chicago GIC summer internship program. In all 33 High school and collage students participated. Internship was conducted at 3 Chicago suburb locations i.e. Naperville, Schaumburg and Lake county for a duration of 8 weeks. Each group was headed by a Coach and a college intern as Team Lead.
The project was to conduct research on causes for Diabetes, its alarming increase, conventional treatment, holistic treatment options, understanding Sewa's SDM ( Stop Diabetes Movement ) program and marketing/making presentations to local community groups.
Interns did an awesome job doing research, learning from Doctors whom they invited, did survey on social media, studied SDM program, interacted with past SDM camp participants, made a short video on Dos and Don'ts on prevention and made presentations to local community groups ( from 20 people to 250 people audience !) e.g. Mayor's office, Temples, Church, Senior groups, Fitness centers, Yoga studios, Hospital, cultural organizations...etc.
On August 14th we had a concluding day event which was attended by over 110 people. Interns made presentation on their 8 weeks of learning and shared their experiences. It was an eye opener for the audience to see their innovation in several areas, depth of research, thinking out of the box and confidence with which they presented. The interns were presented Sewa certificate.
We would like to thank tremendous efforts put in by Team Leads ( Avni Patel, Abby Mohan ) and Coaches ( Kruti ji Patel, Mangal ji Nagarkar and Manish ji Joshi ) for guiding their group.
