CFGxPHIG Discovering Opportunities in Public Health 2019


For our career seminar this semester, we wanted to introduce students to organisations that are doing public health related work that are less prominent but very much essential to the health of the population.

We partnered with the Centre for Future Ready Graduates (CFG) for the very first time to co-host our annual career seminar at CFG CareerSpace.


We invited speakers working in various domains of public health to share about their work, the public health relevance and the kind of work that their interns have previously worked on.
