Talk with Dr. Elizabeth Cameron: Integrating Different Perspectives in Global Health

by Vanessa Angelova

I was looking forward to attending Dr. Cameron’s talk because I was interested in hearing more about how her work in biology contributed to her later career. As a PhD student myself, I always want to know more about how others have chosen to apply their education after completing graduate school. Having these conversations will, in turn, help me make a more informed choice about my own career path.
