We’re pleased to welcome our two summer interns who are working with us at the Board of Supervisor Wilma Chan’s Office on ALL IN Eats and Recipes4Health (formerly known as Food as Medicine)!
Dylan Thai Bach (he/him) is a rising second-year dual Master of Public Policy and Master of Public Health at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy and School of Public Health. He is currently supporting the Office of Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan (BOS3) in advancing legislative priorities around food and health equity. As a Legislative Affairs Intern, he will be managing statewide coalition building, preparing requests for the Personnel/Administration/Legislation (PAL) Committee, and conducting policy analyses at the local, state, and federal levels. His ultimate career goal is to be a champion of health equity and racial justice for historically marginalized and underserved communities.
Whitney Francis (she/her) is a rising second-year dual Master of Public Health and Master of City Planning student at UC Berkeley. As an ALL IN Eats Coordinator this summer, she is stewarding the day-to-day affairs of the ALL IN Eats and continuing to guide partnerships forward, along with developing a formal Circular Food Economy resolution to be adopted by the Board of Supervisors among other things. Her current interests include exploring the root causes of food security, racial and environmental justice, and policy and advocacy. In the future, she hopes to be an advocate to create a more equitable, sustainable, and resilient food system.
