Roots from Odisha with a privilege to experience the culture of many rural as well as urban places as a part of my upbringing. My passion for improving health and hygiene made me pursue Dentistry. After six years of experience in clinical dentistry, I am now currently doing my Masters in Public health from Tata Institute of Social science which has a flagship program specializing in Health Policy, Economics, and Finance. This course has widened my horizons of health not just as curative and preventive, but also analyzing, planning, and implementing the resources with a perspective or context.

FHTS Inspire internship program was a need for the hour, rescue internship program during the COVID lockdown. It's one of a kind platform designed especially for public health professionals to pursue public health research based knowledge enhancement with ad hoc professional networking and guidance. The weekly online brainstorming sessions and my first virtual presentation on a digital FHTS platform conditioned me to the so-called The New COVID era. Thank You team FHTS for the opportunity and an engaging and eventful one month. Looking forward to future interesting and innovative internship programs!" - Dr. Swagatika Mohapatra, MPH (Health Policy, Economics, and Finance), TISS.
