Eliza Brosgol, a rising senior at Haverford College, has joined HCIF’s Clinical Improvement team to serve as the Summer Data & Research Intern. Eliza is an Economics major and French minor at Haverford and has previously interned in the healthcare department at Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s office last summer. One of Eliza’s favorite courses at Haverford was an elective Health Economics course, which provided her an informative overview of the U.S. healthcare system and allowed her to learn about economics in an applied setting. Additionally, Eliza studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark last fall and was exposed to the drastic differences in the Danish and American healthcare systems, which furthered her interest in pursuing an internship directly in the healthcare sphere. At HCIF this summer, Eliza will assist on the Pennsylvania Urology Regional Collaborative (PURC) and CPR Ready projects in addition to managing the organization’s social media accounts. She also hopes to develop a greater understanding of the components that make up the U.S. healthcare system and discover which aspects are of particular interest to her. Additionally, she also wishes to understand the ways in which someone with a background in economics can bring value to a nonprofit organization that targets healthcare improvement initiatives. Lastly, Eliza plays midfield for the Haverford College Women’s Lacrosse team and will continue to pursue a career after graduating that combines her interest in healthcare, business, and economics.
