Our Story
  • Indira Giri | MPH

    I'm excited to announce that I've accepted a job offer! I'll be joining the CDC Foundation on assignment with the Illinois Department of Public Health as a program coordinator for the Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) project. My internship at Assuaged played a significant role in preparing me for this opportunity. I'm incredibly grateful for the skills and experiences gained there. A big thank you doesn't seem sufficient.

    My internship has been an incredible journey, from the exhilarating process of creating engaging videos to the rewarding challenge of overcoming technical hurdles. The culture of openness to new ideas allowed me to pitch and produce expansive content but also fostered an environment where I could continuously enhance my skill set. It's been invaluable, providing ample opportunities for both personal and professional growth.

Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.
