Concussion Alliance Welcomes Three College Interns for December
Concussion Alliance is proud to highlight the work of our three college interns, who have been helping us for the month of December. These interns are contributing to Concussion Alliance through research analysis, science writing, fundraising and outreach efforts, and website design. They have also been instrumental in laying the groundwork for our College Pilot Program. We want to take this opportunity to thank our interns for helping us make it easier to heal from a concussion.
A little more about our interns:
Galen Moller is a senior English major at Carleton College, where she works as a physics tutor. She enjoys cycling, astronomy, and crossword puzzles.

While working with Concussion Alliance, Julian is going to be researching and writing pages and blog posts about concussion recovery to improve the quality and depth of the resources that concussion alliance provides.
