On April 15th, the American Model World Health Organization chapter at the University of Oklahoma hosted a Global Health Panel, consisting of public health experts who have developed their careers within the profession. It was a really nice experience, and I was invited by my friend who is an officer of the chapter to stop by and listen to what these people had to say. Despite the topics that are often covered in the news, it was really reassuring when I was listening to these experts about the importance and relevance of public health in a global society. Given with what has happen over the course of the semester, much of the attention seems to be around what’s happening in Washington regarding health care reform, yet nobody seems to worry about the rise of antibiotic-resistant microbes. No wall can actually prevent these creatures from coming into our public systems, and it was frustrating prior to attending this event how there’s a lack of attention regarding it. After listening to what these experts had to say, it’s good to know that I was not the only one sharing those concerns.
