Emily Spitzer Internship Program


Developing the Next Generation of Health Lawyers

For six years Emily Spitzer guided the National Health Law Program as Executive Director. During Emily's tenure, NHeLP became the preeminent health law organization serving vulnerable populations. Emily's outstanding efforts have helped NHeLP become more critical to health care than at any other time in our nearly 50 year history.

Now that Emily has retired, we ask you to join with us to further her legacy by providing an opportunity to help develop the next generation of health lawyers.

The Emily Spitzer Internship Program will enable NHeLP to give annual internships to outstanding law students in each of our three offices – Washington, Los Angeles, and Chapel Hill. This will further strengthen NHeLP, as well as lay the groundwork for future lawyers who share our commitment to upholding the rights of millions of people who struggle to access affordable, quality health care across the United States.

NHeLP hopes that you will join us in making a contribution – both to honor Emily and to provide for the long-term success of future health advocates. You can give by making a donation online, or feel free to contact NHeLP directly at (202) 289-7661.

Emily raised the bar while at NHeLP. The quality of the staff she hired and her commitment to excellence were critical parts of our success. Please help us pay tribute to her, and to the populations we serve, by paving the way for more exceptional attorneys dedicated to our important cause.

Thank you.
