Planned and participated in several epidemiological studies on various infectious diseases

I think what separates me from other candidates is I truly believe Epidemiology is life changing work. The work we do is vital to protecting humanity from dangerous diseases, and I love being a part of that. If you would like to schedule an interview, then please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thanks for your consideration.
