Mosquito's New Intern!

Hello everyone! I am Zoe Goldberg, the new intern working on Mosquito! I'm an undergraduate at the University of Rochester, double majoring in Public Health and Media. Last summer I interned at the East and Central Harlem District Public Health Office, shadowing the Medical Director there and also helping out at the East Harlem Asthma Center of Excellence. This summer, in addition to working on Mosquito, I am also interning at the Center for Health Media and Policy at Hunter College, serving as the research assistant and media intern for Healthstyles Radio, and also representing CHMP at select conferences/meetings and meet-ups this summer and blogging about my experiences.

I am so excited to be working here and combining my passions for public health and media in so many ways!
