The American Mock World Health Organization (AMWHO) is the national structure for creating model World Health Assemblies across the United States. Students are invited to attend the second AMWHO Conference, which aims to engage undergraduate and graduate students in a weekend of debate on Universal Health Coverage and to educate students in the plethora of current global health opportunities.
The AMWHO Conference 2015 will be held at the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from October 2nd-4th. Participants will represent either a WHO Ambassador, NGO Representative, or Media Correspondent, and will work with other like-minded attendees to form a working resolution to send to the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. Keynote speakers include Dr. Audrey Chapman (Profesor of Community Medicine and Healthcare and the Healey Chair in Medical Humanities and Bioethics, University of Connecticut School of Medicine) and Ambassador Jimmy Kolker (current U.S. delegate to the World Health Assembly and Assistant Secretary for Global Affairs of the HHS).
In order to participate, attendees should purchase a $60 ticket through our website, http://amwho.org/amwho2015.html. Registration ends in two weeks, and spots are quickly filling up. Students should register as soon as possible so that they may experience this unique and highly relevant opportunity to develop leadership skills and meet others who share a passion for global health. There is absolutely no experience necessary for participation in AMWHO. If you have questions, please feel free to visit our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
