HSC

I am currently in the last semester of my bachelor’s at Bombay College of Pharmacy. I developed interest in public health during my UG and decided to pursue the same. I realized the need for public awareness, to educate and help people to prevent the spread of diseases and the emergence of health policies which can help everyone afford even the most expensive treatments. Later, I read about a course on Epidemiology on Coursera which made me realize my strong interest in the field of public health.

Testimonial

In June 2020, I joined FHTS to learn more about the vast field of public health. This internship has helped me in a variety of ways, including enhancing my interpersonal
Skills and teaching me how to write a review article. Working on COVID-19 policy and
Advisories gave me insight into how countries are responding to the pandemic. The SMAART rapid tracker provided information on the number of cases, cases recovered, testing centres available, and various mobile apps for COVID-19 developed by various nations, among other things. I'd want to express my gratitude to Dr. Ashish Joshi for consistently motivating and assisting me throughout the internship. I'd also like to express my sincere thanks to Harpreet ma'am for guiding me with the writing of a review article. Finally, I'd want to thank the entire FHTS team for this opportunity.
