“VIA is by, about, and for people,” Director Michael Rich often says. “Like a terracotta sculpture, it shows the fingerprints of everyone who has worked on it.” This is certainly the case for each of our research interns – they and VIA are enriched by their work. VIA is fortunate to have the interest, enthusiasm, and innovation of a variety of students who work with VIA throughout the year. We are grateful for the many hours and ideas each intern commits – their efforts are essential to the transformation of VIA visual narratives into research findings that can be applied to improve patients’ lives.

Summer 2007 interns logged and began analysis on data generated by participants from the VIA-OWL and VIA-OAR studies. They were the first group to use Transana, a new software program to view, log, and code the visual narratives. The summer team was selected from over 150 applicants, and represented a variety of interests, institutions, and backgrounds. We also had the benefit of two enthusiastic and dedicated returning interns who were instrumental in providing support to the newcomers: Martha returned for her second summer while Marissa extended her Spring internship another season.
