What are they saying about the program?

"I am a second year grad student and was placed in the Governor’s Office of Health Transformation. My biggest highlight from the office was dealing with the Supreme Court decision upholding the Affordable Care Act and the impact that had on the office. I loved working with such intelligent and experienced individuals who really worked hard to provide a great experience."
