“I chose an internship with MMV because I have always been interested in international development and with my experience in healthcare and pharmaceuticals this was a perfect fit. I also wanted to experience the non-profit sector for potential future endeavors. As a public-private partnership, MMV could provide insight into the non-profit sector while still maintaining a lot of the strengths of the private sector.
I worked with MMV’s Access and Product Management team to identify innovative distribution channels to access previously untapped populations with both treatment and information. The most valuable part of the summer was the experience in the non-profit sector and realizing the large differences (and sometimes shocking similarities) with the private sector."
