Hear what people are saying about BroadStreet

Interning with BroadStreet definitely helped me to develop transferable skills. It exposed me to leadership skills that I didn't know I possessed ... It also allowed me to collaborate with other professionals that had similar values, yet diverse backgrounds because of the global environment. It was a great opportunity and I hope that it continues to help others grow in their mission to providing good data to those in need.

Liz S. May 2021

I gained unparalleled experience and a depth of knowledge and application. I also made an excess of connections and continue to benefit by engaging with members of BroadStreet. Tracy and my peers have been pivotal in boosting me into my career and helping me to better understand the world. My experience at BroadStreet has been fantastic, and I’m so appreciative of it.

Brooke C. October 2021

Being a team member at BroadStreet has added value to my development: self-discipline for remote work to provide deliverables; analytics (i.e. developing hypothesis, data discovery, data preparation, generating data models, communicating results) data -entry, data wrangling, networking skills and more.

Matt W. October 2021

BroadStreet has allowed me to network beyond my imagination! I have been able to learn new skills and put them to use. Having the support of all the staff, volunteers and other students during my time at BroadStreet has really allowed me to grow as an individual... My LinkedIn connections continue to grow and allow me to explore other options in the field of Public Health. I am extremely grateful for BroadStreet ... and what staff has done.

Zira V. October 2021

BroadStreet helped me enhance my data analysis and quality control skills. It has helped me to adjust and learn to work effectively in both a remote workplace and a public health setting. The experience was really beneficial for my development as a public health professional.

Kevin C. November 2021

Collaboration and time management has been some of the skills I developed and are more proficient in since BroadStreet. I have a greater appreciation for Data and data visualization process. Broadstreet has brought me a lot of clarify on the world of data, from collection to visualization. I love that I was able to see how the data moves through the steps to being published. I am super excited to use my skills that I learned through Broadstreet in my public health career.
