" Most of the health challenges experienced by our communities can be tackled by public health interventions and the reduction of health inequities. I am determined to provide solutions towards this cause to the world through my clinical knowledge and problem solving skills. The Millennium Fellowship Program provides an opportunity to improve on the skills I require to make my cause a success. In addition, the opportunity of meeting with like minded millennials is invaluable. "
