Hosting interns from international universities
In the framework of its internship program, during the first months of 2012 winter, Curatio International Foundation hosted two interns Lucia Callizo from Macalester college in Minnesota and Laura Covarrubias from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Interns made useful contribution to CIF ongoing research projects.
As interns say, their experience at the Curatio International Foundation will help them foster their careers in international public health research.
Here is the video where Laura and Lucia share their experience over their internship opportunities at CIF:
