I’m Dr.Abirami, I’m a dentist and completed my graduation in the year 2016. I worked as an assistant dental surgeon for 3 years in a private dental clinic. Through public health dentistry in my BDS curriculum, I learned about the basics of epidemiology, research methodology, community-based healthcare approach, and healthcare workers at the grassroots level.

The covid-19 pandemic brought wreck to all the healthcare development across the world by ruining the lives and livelihoods of millions of people. It eroded the fiscal health care of all developing and underdeveloped countries in a catastrophic way, even developed countries to a certain extent. I strongly believe there is a symbiotic relationship between the environment and human beings; this should be maintained in a better way to achieve a healthy community. This made me determined to pursue public health career which will give me the opportunity, not only to deal with health-related problems but also to decipher broader key issues such as poverty, environmental health hazard, violence, etc...
This public health internship through FHTS were filled with learning and knowledge of how public health practically works. It helped me to learn time management and data management skills. It also made me to go through lot of articles and journals while sharing my thoughts regarding daily topics in FHTS forum. This also enhanced my content writing and articles searching skills.
I learned a lot about COVID-19 management skills and studies approach methodology. The presentations and blog writing was also helpful. I am grateful for this opportunity provided through this internship to honor my public health interest.
