“I’m most excited to be able to see the difference we’re making for patients in the Yale New Haven Health System (YNHH) hospitals. I’ll get to work with the project manager, so we’ll be able to see the progress that the whole department is making. I decided to intern at YNHH because I wanted to be able to spend time with my family this summer. The past two summers I worked away from home.”
