Attending School of Public Health trained me to look through social problems in big pictures. The change of a single policy and the spread of one piece of information could benefits huge amount of population. And my summer internship at Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health’s (MOASH) gave me deeper feeling about this. The Michigan…

Round 2!

I recently started the second and final stage of my Health Management and Policy program, and I can’t believe that it’s already been a year since I first came to Ann Arbor and started orientation at SPH!

A summer…
