GPSI:  “Celebrating over 45 years of Leadership Lived”

“The IDPH – HIV/AIDS Surveillance Unit was in need of an intern with a proficient level of expertise with computers and computer software.  Our intern has a keen understanding of the database systems that are vital to our programs and has served as the unit’s liaison with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.  We are pleased and very fortunate to have this GPSI intern as part of our unit.” 

Christine Hoffman, Manager, Illinois Department of Public Health – HIV/AIDS Infectious Diseases Surveillance Unit

“GPSI interns that I have mentored have contributed many useful ideas and developed innovative projects that would otherwise not have existed at the IEPA. The interns have seen firsthand how their internship benefits both the IEPA and the people served by IEPA programs. In just 21 months, the GPSI interns secured for themselves an impressive combination of education and experience, including a portfolio to share with prospective employers.”

Heather Nifong, Associate Director, IEPA
