ASPPH is pleased to welcome two Summer Interns for 2021.
Damaris Bell, MPH, a recent graduate of West Virginia University School of Public Health, has joined ASPPH as our first Racial Justice Intern.

Following the internship, Damaris plans to attend medical school and specialize in Pediatric Psychiatry.

Ankita is a rising senior at NYU studying Global Public Health and Biology with the hopes of working in the business sector of the public health/sciences field.
