Another year, another international group to fill my GEF requirements, and I’m really excited about this year’s: American Mock World Health Organization! Or AMWHO for short. Last year I was a part of Model UN, and AMWHO is a pretty similar concept, but instead of modeling after the United Nations, it’s modeled after the World Health Organization – which is really cool for people who want to go into a health field, like me.
Like MUN, AMWHO has biweekly meetings and a conference once a year. It hasn’t been around as long as Model UN, and it doesn’t have as many members, but I think both of those qualities are pretty cool. Hopefully I’ll be able to be pretty involved and learn a lot of things about how healthcare is viewed from an international perspective. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to go to the conference this year – I have to work on Saturdays – but I’m hoping I can get my head in the game and help with planning for this year or next year!
