Public health internship in Cape Town

I spent an amazing semester in SA where I interned with a famous Public Health professor. I assisted in her data gathering, went with her to an international conference (she invited me) and even co-authored a paper which will be published and presented at a major professional gathering. I lived in a group home with other volunteers and interns. There were about 7 of us, from the US, South America and Europe. We hung out a lot in the evenings and did stuff together on weekends. I highly recommend ELI, tons of support and really cool programs. Other people did construction, engineering, teaching and an animal program. I came home with a ton of experience, tons of materials for my thesis, and a LOR from a big person in the field. So much more than I hoped for.
