The American Mock World Health Organization or Model-WHO is a conference simulation of the World Health Assembly, the annual global health policymaking forum of the World Health Organization (WHO). As chapter members of the national organization, students of UMBC come together twice a month to discuss current pressing health issues. Every 2nd Monday of the month, we hold our General Body Meetings where we discuss current topics such as refugee and migrant health, maternity healthcare, and much more! Every 4th Monday of the month, we invite professors from different educational backgrounds to speak to our student body about their experiences and research studies. These meetings titled “Snack & Learn” are a great opportunity for us to learn about potential career options in the future while learning how our area of study can impact the world around us. So far, we have had Dr. Callaghan-Koru and Professor Birger from the HAPP Department speak to us about their career achievements. We plan to prepare nine of our members for the annual AMWHO conference taking place at UNC-Chapel Hill from April 2-5, 2020 during the Spring Semester!
