Join us for an audience-driven Web Forum! We’ve gathered together a group of former GHFP fellows and interns who are excited to spend 60 minutes talking about their career paths and answering your questions. What is it like to be a technical advisor at USAID? How can I start my global health career? Do I have what it takes to work in international development? Take a minute to think about the questions you would ask if you had the chance.

Join us for a complimentary Web Forum featuring a gifted group of professionals with a diverse range of experiences and areas of expertise, including: Antoinette ‘Toni’ Craig, HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment Intern; Cecilia Vu, Health Research Analyst Intern in the Office of Maternal and Child Health; Dr. Fred Fuentes, Public Health Integration & Development Advisor in Guatemala; and Jennifer Mason, Health Advisor in the Bureau for Asia and the Middle East. Find out what they are doing now! Important: Submit your questions in advance to help shape the discussion. You can also submit questions during the event.
