The experience of presenting to a team of top scientists definitely helped prepare me for presenting to professors and C-suite executives. From a subject matter perspective, learning more about NIDA and the NIH more broadly was incredibly helpful. I took many courses on US health policy, so understanding how research in this space worked was crucial. Additionally, as a consultant, I've done many engagements in which having this background was extremely helpful.
