CDIP Capstone Project
This video is SCA Member Mary Nghe’s capstone project for the Fish & Wildlife Service’s CDIP (Career Discovery Internship Program) at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge.
Mary’s roles at Heinz ranged from biological research to visitor services, but the pharmacy major wasn’t sure how they’d fit into her own career plans until discussing it with her supervisor, deputy refuge manager and SCA alumna Mariana Bergeson. “Mariana recommended Nature Rx. It’s a program where doctors prescribe time outdoors to their patients,” says Mary,who is now exploring the concept with her advisor at Philadelphia’s University of the Sciences.
