4 thoughts on “Exciting Internship in Public Health with Alanda Health !”
Hi! I was wondering if this is a paid position??
We’d love to give you more information about the internship. Could you please send us an email at email@example.com ?

Thank you very much for this internship opportunity. I am currently a master of Public Health student with a concentration in Epidemiology at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. It is a great opportunity for people like me to gain some insides into working on projects with your partner organizations, contributing to research, evaluating reports, and obtaining some training. However, I would like to ask if internships get something like a certificate of participation at the end of the internship. My second is with regard to the internship duration. Could it be possible to do it for a period of 2 months instead of 4 months?
Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you.
