Director's Letter

Dear Prospective Delegates and Esteemed Colleagues,

 

Dear Prospective Delegates and Esteemed Colleagues, 

 

We are so excited to welcome you to the 2019 American Mock World Health Organization Regional Conference held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on October 25th and 26th! After being internationally recognized as the Best Delegation of the 2019 International AMWHO Conference at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, our University of Oklahoma chapter is thrilled to be hosting our own regional conference.

 

 Oklahoma City serves as a hub of global health, beginning with the University of Oklahoma and our very own Hudson College of Public Health. Home to a health-resource rich environment, we wish all delegates and conference attendees take advantage of the opportunity and feel encouraged to design creative initiatives to solve complex world health problems.

 

We are excited to announce that the theme for the 2019 Regional Conference is Global Mental Health: From Silence to Solutions. Our goal with this conference is to bring together a diverse group of delegates, professionals, and speakers to develop skills in public health diplomacy and develop resolutions. Conference attendees will take on the roles of  WHO member states, non-governmental organizations, and global media organizations to analyze and collaborate using diverse, real-world perspectives 

 

With different individuals, countries, and regions having different ideas on pressing topics and areas to consider in public policy, we hope that participating in this discussion will allow you to view this debatable topic from new and interesting angles and develop innovative global resolutions. 

 

At AMWHO, we believe that think global; act local is not merely a slogan for shirts, but the way in which everyone can contribute to solving the crisis that is a lack of awareness around public health issues.

 

We would like to thank the AMWHO National Nonprofit Board of Directors, National Advisory Board, and our Conference Executive Board for all of their hard work. Their time and effort is truly what made this conference possible. We would also like to thank the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center for hosting and allowing us to hold this conference on their campus in the hub of Oklahoma City as well as the University of Oklahoma College of Public Health for their sponsorship and support of our cause.

 

We hope that you are as inspired by this topic as we are and we cannot wait to welcome you to our conference in October! 





Sincerely,
Kody Oliver and Lizzy Kosco
Co-Directors, AMWHO University of Oklahoma
