I am Rini Abraham, a trained Bio-technologist with 2 years’ industrial experience in the production of therapeutic antibodies. Having worked in the lab, and having gained some knowledge with respect to certain diseases, I wanted to explore this further and put into use the acquired knowledge into field and that is when I joined the Masters of Public Health Course.
As an MPH student, my interests lie in addressing the issues of Non-communicable diseases in India with a focus on identifying the major contributors of the same and how as a professional in near future I can contribute in reducing the case fatality due to these diseases.
Highest Education: MSc Biotechnology - VIT University
Date of Joining: June 1, 2020
My 1 month stint with Foundation of Healthcare Technologies Society taught me a few things. Firstly, I feel more equipped with the skills of understanding various concepts in Public Health. Secondly, it has provided me with a breadth of exposures to a wide variety of settings and contexts.
I am grateful that I had this Virtual Internship Experience that has given me a chance to educate myself more about the Public Health system, through interaction with my fellow mates and exchange of perspectives. I think this is what made the Internship more interesting.
