In this context, I am especially glad to see the story on Elaine Duran (CMPH’ 15) who is about to begin an internship with the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA), and who, during her first year here, balanced her coursework, internships at the NYC Health Department and the US Department of Health and Human Services, and somehow also found time to be co-president of Students for a National Health Plan.  Similarly, how could we not be proud of Rami Rafeh (EMPH’ 12), who developed the idea for a healthcare start-up in his entrepreneurship class here in HPM, and who has now taken that idea and turned it into Spott3r, which helps process gym reimbursement credits to pay individuals for their workouts.
