DukeEngage student James Hwang recently returned from the DukeEngage program in Washington DC; through the month-long program, he worked closely with those in Washington involved in health care policy as well as global heath initiatives.

“Being in Washington has allowed me to experience a career-oriented internship, placed me on the forefront of U.S. public policy, and underscored the magnitude of the possible impact from the actions of only a few people.

From panel discussions with prominent policymakers to simply experiencing the independence of living in a big city, this DukeEngage program has been immersive in ways unimaginable prior to my flight to Reagan National Airport.”
