My internship at the World Heart Federation was a very well-rounded, fresh and educational experience. With the support of my supervisor and encouragement of my colleagues, I was able to gain a great deal of knowledge in the areas of communications and noncommunicable diseases that I will carry with me throughout my academic and professional careers.
