RACHA welcomes True Claycombe for the summer of 2014!
True Claycombe is a graduate student at American University in Washington, D.C. True has just completed her first year of her Masters of International Development at American Universityâ€™s School of International Service. The focus of her masters is on health policy and community development. Before going to graduate school, True worked as a congressional legislative assistant focused on health and social issues. True is most interested in using her skills in policy and education in development to empower the communities she works with in order to drive social change. She came to RACHA because she is interested in working with communities both at the technical level and policy level to improve health in developing countries. While interning at RACHA, her scope of work will entail evaluating the Community Health Output-Based Aid Program and conducting a supply chain analysis of the development initiative. She is excited to be working with RACHA and hopes to learn more about the health issues affecting marginalized communities.
