Comment from Brandeis intern, Summer 2012:
“This was the best possible internship I could have ever imagined. The office was a great place to work and the staff was always encouraging, helpful, and open to ideas about what public health issues MHC could promote. I learned so much and really felt like I was part of the team. I highly recommend this internship opportunity.”
