Midlands Regional Coordinator

Annabel Pilecka


Hello to the Students for Global Health Network!

My name is Annabel and I am extremely excited to be your Midlands Regional Coordinator for this next year!

Who am I? A bit about me: I am a fifth year medical student from Keele who also adores going to the theatre, reading plays, collecting cacti and discovering new places.

What is my role? My role is to inspire, connect, network the Midland regional branches- bring them together to advocate change and spread the enthusiasm for all things Global Health. By bringing together people, with their inspiring ideas and positive morale, I believe we can work together to make change both locally and nationally.

What shall I bring to the committee? Enthusiasm! Energy!

Am I excited to start? Well if you could not tell already, yes I certainly am.

I look forward to working with you all this next year. Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me on the above email.
