“My internship with APCO was a wonderful experience. APCO's internship program is well structured and provides interns with engaging work and learning opportunities. One of my favorite parts of the program was the intern project competition as we were able to develop a pitch with other interns and present it to various employees at APCO”. –Elena Penati, Health care intern, Spring 2015
