MPH Candidate, Epidemiology
Boston University School of Public Health
During my summer internship at USAID, I helped produce USAID’s Health-Related Research Report 2012-2013, a report that chronicled USAID’s $170 million/ year research investments across various global health agendas (e.g. effective malaria nets, innovative HIV/AIDs treatment, and cost-effective medicines to treat newborn infections). It was a fantastic way to know many people across various departments and to glimpse at USAID’s enormous research scope. Currently, I am in my last semester as a graduate student at Boston University School of Public Health in epidemiology. On the side, I help research the health consequences and prevention of partner violence and child abuse in families.
