Farewell Fall 2011 Interns
Just a few months, AAHI welcomed Fall 2011 interns, Candace Lee and Carolyn Ho, and already it is time to bid them farewell. Candace and Carolyn joined us from the School of Public Health at the University of Maryland College Park. This internship is a part of their undergraduate academic program.
Candace and Carolyn took initiative and actively worked with AAHI on various projects and programs. They conducted small business outreach, participated in outreach events, and developed health education articles. They provided tremendous support in AAHI's ongoing hepatitis B project efforts.
Candace and Carolyn also worked on individual research projects in their respective interests. They orally presented their in-depth research to AAHI staff- Candace presented on Health IT, and Carolyn presented on Mental Health First Aid.
At AAHI, we are proud to graduate another group of interns from our internship program. We thank Candace and Carolyn for their hard work and passion. We wish them all the best in their future endeavors!
Words of advice from Candace and Carolyn:
"Come in with an open mind and a willingness to accept any opportunities or challenges that come before you because you will never know where these experiences can take you in the future. You might be surprised. For me, I never expected that I could do health outreach events, but through this internship I learned something new about myself." - Candace Lee
"This internship gives you great exposure and experiences in many public health projects and activities. You’ll meet a lot of great people that you can learn from too. Take initiative and put yourself out there, you’ll never know what opportunities can come from it." - Carolyn Ho
