2019 AMWHO at UNC Regional Conference, ‘The Global Food Predicament’
January 25, 2019 - January 27, 2019
AMWHO is an authentic simulation of the World Health Assembly, the sole decision-making body of the World Health Organization (WHO). At the AMWHO at UNC Regional Conference, approximately 100 graduate and undergraduate participants will assume the roles of WHO ambassadors, non-governmental organization members, media correspondents or food/agricultural industry representatives.
Participants will engage in debates and discussion surrounding the theme for this year, “The Global Food Predicament: Equity | Access | Transparency.” Through collaboration, students will craft approaches to address the world’s pressing public health challenges and draft a final resolution to send to the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.
Throughout the weekend, students will have access to renowned professors from the Gillings School of Global Public Health and public health professions from the Triangle. Students will hear from and talk to these guest speakers at the banquet, opening and closing ceremonies, and lunch and learn events.
