Jesse Berns went to the CDC for hersummer internship to learn about how to best operationalize my field epidemiology career aspirations. Basia Tomczyk, UC Berkeley DrPH alum, was her mentor throughout the summer. She worked on literature reviews for a reproductive health and SGBV CDC protocol and assisted in the design of SGBV indicators for a large, multinational refugee-centric SGBV guideline. These tasks allowed her to understand more fully just how acute and protracted emergencies are monitored and evaluated at the facility, camp, regional, and national level. In late June Jesse was approached by another member of the senior staff regarding a Syrian Refugee project in Iraq that he needed designed, implemented, and analyzed. Jesse spent the duration of the summer designing all materials for what would be known as the Iraq Access To Care Study.
