National Exchange Officer (incoming)

Gemma Richardson

Hello! I’m Gemma, and I’m the National Exchange Officer. My job involves liaising with local exchange officers from the UK, and a whole international team so I can enable exchanges for students from all over the world, so they can come and visit the UK! I also work closely with Salma, the NEO of outgoing students. 

I wanted to take part in SfGH as I am a huge Global Health nerd (currently completing my intercalation year doing a MSc of Global Health!), and the opportunity of being a part of a huge network of people who share the same interests was too good to miss. I’m lucky enough to have already experienced some observerships and exchanges abroad, and so helping other people access these valuable experiences is very close to my heart.

Bylaw mandated responsibilities:
