Here's a message from one of our members, Rachel Cumberbatch:
Summer is an important time for aspiring public health professionals who are looking for opportunities to compliment their formal education by doing a summer internship in DC. We can play an important role in helping them identify those opportunities. Please help me compile information on summer opportunities for current college students who are interested in public health. Summer experiences for students of all stages will be helpful, college freshman to post doc. The opportunities may be either paid or unpaid. I will compile any information provided and work with the One Health Academy to disseminate information to everyone.
