Shoshanna Goldin - Geneva Switzerland

Geneva, Switzerland
Outside of the United Nations Palace in Geneva. The flags waving in the wind were absolutely gorgeous on the bright August day.

Career goal: Global Health Diplomat

Internship outline: A public health, innovation, and intellectual property intern for the World Health Organization. I prepared for the United Nations General Assembly High Level Meeting on antimicrobial resistance.

Value of experience: Working with brilliant WHO leadership who were willing to talk about the history of global health diplomacy and offer their perspectives on the future of the field.

Best moment/experience: At the World Health Assembly, I slipped into the room where delegates of 194 member states discussed smallpox samples, reforming WHO and antimicrobial resistance.
