Educating and Empowering Youth


Scleroderma United firmly believes that educating and empowering the next generation of leaders is vital for advancing healthcare and patient support. As part of this commitment, we offer an internship placement program in which we collaborate with community organizations to offer internships to aspiring healthcare professionals. In September 2023, Scleroderma United welcomed its first cohort of interns. The Fall 2023 Intern Cohort consists of high school and undergraduate students from 17 different countries.

We would like to thank our  Internship Sponsors:

Each intern engages in an Amplified Awareness Campaign, runs a personal fundraising campaign, and builds a Patient Advocate Portfolio. Throughout the 10-week process, we encourage our interns to learn about scleroderma and share what they learn with their communities. Here are some highlights of our interns’ work!
