testimonial
"If only all academia could be so enjoyable, the course was a great introduction into the Public Health sector. The information that I gained from the course was applicable on my job and in my personal life as well. The course was relaxed and the pace considering the amount of information given was not daunting at all. The more I learned the more I became enthused about the next session."
