"Working with NALHD has given me first-hand knowledge of the public health issues I have been learning about in class. I now have hands-on experience working with local public health departments throughout the state. The people at NALHD took the time to work with me and help me to better understand the ever-changing public health infrastructure in Nebraska, and I now feel more prepared to enter the public health workforce."
-2015-16 student intern, UNMC College of Public Health MPH program
