Making the Most of a Full-time MPP Program

I recently accepted an offer for a spot in a full time MPP program from a very decent, non-Ivy school.

I have enough money saved to avoid going into debt if I work part time. I want to offset the opportunity costs of two years outside of work by making myself as employable as possible. [more inside]

Can you point me to existing data on Native American health?

For work I am making a complete database of all existing (reasonably current) data on Native American health/risk factors. But I know next to nothing about the area. What are some surveys I should look at? It would be especially helpful if the data were at the tribal level of analysis. I'm at a bit of a loss and I'd appreciate any help you could offer! Thanks in advance.

Public policy organizations in Boston?

What are some socially progressive public policy organizations in the Boston area? Bonus points if they might have internships for an MPP student this summer. Asking for a friend who is not a Boston native but is moving there for the summer and doesn't have great networking contacts. [more inside]
