Affiliates Coordinator

Kate Beckett

My name is Kate and I am the new Affiliates Coordinator for 2019-20! I first joined SfGH back in 2016 and have since spent two years on my local committee and attended an IFMSA March Meeting. I chose to run for Affiliates Coordinator because I strongly believe our Affiliates are one of the most important and under-celebrated parts of SfGH (see the Affiliates section of the website if you’re not sure who they are!) These groups of inspiring young people are incredibly successful in educating others and running meaningful projects/campaigns around specific global health issues. I am very excited to work alongside them this year, aiming to promote unity and cooperation between our organisations and combine our efforts to fight for fairer and more equitable health for all!
