Hi everyone – Melissa here! I’m a 23-year old grad student at UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, currently working towards my Master’s of Public Health in Epidemiology. My research interests include global health (obviously), sexual/reproductive health, and infectious diseases. I am spending the summer interning with an NGO called Population Council in their Guatemala country office (in Guatemala City, the capital), helping with quantitative analysis and evaluation of some of their community-based health promotion programs around the country.
