*Students are blogging about their internship experiences from destinations as far away as Switzerland and Africa.*
At the University of Arizona, summer internships matter.
Three graduate students from the UA Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health are working as interns across the globe this summer.
From the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland to the city of Maseru in southern Africa, these students are making a difference – and writing about their experiences on blogs.
