Lauren Violette, Research Intern 

"My time at NPEC taught me how crucial sound data and epidemiolgical methods are in order to provide a foundation for evidence-based health decisions. Not only are the staff incredibly knowledgeable and approachable, but they also have created a culture in which passion for bettering the health of the women, children, and families throughout Ireland is the top priority."
