Would you recommend Harris County Public Health?

by Rolanda F. from Houston, TX (January 13, 2016)
I'm a Health Science major with the hopes of becoming an Epidemiologist in the future. I'm all about gaining real life experience in something that I'm interested in. Not only does it look good on your resume, but it also gives you the reassurance that you're in the right field. I enjoyed the time that I was there! I hope to gain more experience in the future!
