MPH student, DGH
Method Choice Intern, USAID
Kelsey spent the summer interning at USAID in Washington DC through Global Health Fellows Program-II/PHI in the Office of Population and Reproductive Health. As the Method Choice Intern, she assisted with support and scale-up of the contraceptive method DMPA-SC, more commonly known as "Sayana Press” (an easy-to-use hormonal birth control option for women). Much of the work she did is also informing her thesis research, namely exploring associations between use of contraceptive methods and HIV-status. Throughout her time at USAID, Kelsey enjoyed the opportunity to work on her thesis, meet advisers, and connect academic experiences with day-to-day work in the office.
