The current generation of vaccines against rotavirus, the leading cause of diarrheal disease in children under five years old, was introduced just a decade ago. In the intervening years, 81 countries have implemented rotavirus vaccination to prevent diarrheal disease.

This past summer, I had the incredible privilege of interning with the Resource Development team at the Sabin Vaccine Institute. As someone who is passionate about global health equity, I was excited to learn more about what it means to work at non-profit within the global health field. Looking back on my experience, I am so thankful that I had the opportunity at work at Sabin and support its mission to alleviate needless human suffering from vaccine preventable and neglected tropical diseases.
