“I had a wonderful study abroad experience. I got the chance to work with leaders in HIV prevention and lead a quantitative analysis for my master’s capstone. I am now an epidemiologist for the New York State Department of Health and part of that success is thanks to the wonderful professors of Georgetown’s Global Health program and the Global Health degree.”Kayla Nikc, M.S. ’22
