Hello all! My name is Oliver, I’m a final year medical student at Cardiff University and I am really excited to be your Director of Branch Affairs this year.
I’ve been involved with Students for Global Health for 4-years now as a local member, branch and national committee member, being the South West regional coordinator last year. One of the things I love about global health is how wide-reaching it is and how many really important topics it encompasses, with Migrant Health and Climate Change and Health being very close to my heart.
The role of Director of Branch Affairs is to support the development of branches across the network and that will be even more important this year with COVID. One of my hopes for this year is to create a national network that is more collaborative than ever – sharing resources and ideas with everyone.
I can’t wait to see you all at some of our amazing events this year!
