Meet INHF's new communications interns

By INHF on September 10, 2015 in Blog

Rachel Headshot Hi everyone!

My name is Rachel Dupree and I’ll be joining the INHF communications team this fall. I’m a senior at Drake University studying public relations and international relations with a concentration in global public health. I’m originally from Forest Lake, Minnesota, but I love Des Moines more than my heart can stand.

I don’t have much free time, but when I do I like to spend it reading, finding new and odd foreign films, and binge watching New Girl. I can also occasionally be found at the gym, but only occasionally.

As a communications intern, I’ll be assisting in writing blog posts and press releases, updating social media accounts, and conducting policy research.

I can’t wait to get started working with INHF! If you want to call me/beep me, you can reach me at

Hello!Katie Headshot

My name is Katie Bandurski and I will be working with INHF this year as a communications intern. I grew up in the greater Milwaukee area, but moved to Iowa in pursuit of higher education. I’m a sophomore studying magazine journalism at Drake University.

I’m a vegetarian foodie, avid tea drinker and frequent thrift shopper in search of the perfect fall flannel. In my free time you can usually find me writing, checking out live music or exploring the great city of Des Moines.

Over the course of the semester I will be writing, blogging, researching and everything in between for INHF. I am incredibly excited to join the team, and look forward to working with such passionate people.

Feel free to shoot me an email at or follow me on Twitter @KBandurski.

Since 1986, INHF has employed at least one communications intern each year to help with the organization’s outreach projects. Learn more about INHF’s communications internship program.
