Ms. Hartman Goes to Washington

Junior Erin Hartman has secured a competitive summer internship with the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions within their Health Policy Division.

Hartman, who is also a Public Policy Research Scholar at Wharton, will be analyzing legislation, writing memorandums, and conducting research, as well as attending hearings and briefings on Capitol Hill. Her areas of focus will be on women’s health  and healthcare access. The committee is chaired by Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and its ranking member is Senator Patty Murray (D-WA).

Hartman’s combination of studies will take the practical science of nursing with the theoretical study of economics and policy in order to pursue a career in healthcare politics, specifically issues of health insurance and healthcare access for women.
