Second summer in a row Rainbow Research hosts two interns through the YWCA Minneapolis, Girls Inc. Eureka! Program

Eureka! 2018 interns, Faith & Asha, with Rainbow Research Associates Selam Tilahun & Katie Fritz Fogel

Faith and Asha spent four weeks working alongside Rainbow staff practicing evaluation methods.  In addition to joining staff at meetings with clients, Faith and Asha were responsible for taking photos about menthol advertising in the community and interviewing peers about their perceptions of menthol tobacco use and access to menthol tobacco products.  They were also responsible for creating online survey tools, doing data entry for over 100 youth interviews, and summarizing data.
