Post-Internship Testimonial of Dr Vishakh Saraf:
Working with FHTS ha been one of the more rewarding professional experiences that I have had. The entire process of mentoring, guidance and exposure that Dr Ashish Joshi provides to us is very wholesome and illuminating. I have truly learned the value of team effort and the fact that even in bleak times of COVID-19, we can get together and help contribute to the incredible field of public health. Thank you, sir, and thank you FHTS.
