I am a third-year Honors student studying international affairs and Arabic, and my research interests involve healthcare access in refugee camps. My interests are focused broadly on refugee health in camps, including the prevalence of mental illness among refugee populations.
In talking with Institute of Government faculty, I’ve had the chance to see firsthand one of the most pressing challenges in providing state and local services: clarity in communication.
I am a sophomore studying statistics and mathematics, with interests in public policy and public health. With so many problems in this world, I believe that data is one of the most powerful weapons available to effect real change in the world. I want to dedicate my life to serving vulnerable populations by working at the intersection of public policy and data.
How do you explain the value of public service? This is the framing question I will explore as an intern in the Office of Communications at the Carl Vinson Institute of Government. Throughout this semester, I will research and discuss special projects handled by the various branches of the Institute. Just to hint at a few: these projects can include anything from on-campus lectures to statewide initiatives in security and economic development.
