Each month, POW will be highlighting interns that are currently working in Wellness and Prevention Services. We wanted to thank them for all of their hard work!


Marissa Carpinetti, Prevention Graduate Assistant

Marissa is currently pursuing a Masters in Public Health from Boston University. She is concentrating in Health Communication and Promotion, and Sex, Sexuality, and Gender. For POW, she advises the marketing and publications subcommittees. Her career goals are to decrease everyday stigmas related to reproductive and sexual health and to increase education opportunities to expose people to different experiences and mentalities that they might not otherwise interact with.

Fun facts about Marissa: She loves spending time with friends, trying new restaurants, binging a new Netflix series, and going to the beach.
