Ayah Wali, Management Analyst for the National Biodefense Science Board in the Office of Policy and Planning for the Assistant Secretary of Preparedness and Response in the Department of Health and Human Services. I am based in Capitol Hill, Washington DC. Plans, decisions, and actions are undertaken daily to achieve health care goals, and playing a critical role in achieving those goals is nothing less than fascinating. Technology is blooming and lifting our everyday work arena to heights and levels that once did not fathom the mind. As a government employee, I would like to see the changes in our workforce development and connect with those with driven minds and open ideas.
