A wonderful lunch at Emory University with Dean Raskob of the College of Public Health from OUHSC. AMWHO exec is…
This past semester, I decided to try out AMWHO, or American Model World Health Organization. Think Model UN but for the World Health Organization. I got involved because of three things: (1) public health (2) diplomacy and (3) global mindset.
Part of why I became a GEF in the first place was to think from the global perspective. It’s easy for us to reflect and be concern about the issues and problems that are happening locally because those are the issues and problems that will have the most profound effect on our lives. Nonetheless, the problems and issues that are facing us globally are the ones that require much more effort and nuances to parse through because of the differences in the way many people want the world to work.
This past conference was all about climate change. This conference, of course, presupposes that climate change is (1) real (2) man-made and (3) have consequences that will negatively impact the ecosystems that we all live in. I think it was a good insight in connecting the political aspect of climate change and all of our presumed public health concerns.
