Who is Engineering World Health (EWH) and what do they do?
EWH is a dynamic global organization serving engineering students, healthcare professionals, and, most importantly, communities and patients in need around the world. Our mission is to inspire, educate, and empower the biomedical engineering community to improve healthcare delivery around the world. Through our institute programs, chapters, engineering education initiatives, virtual programs and cultural exchanges we aim to spread awareness of challenges that exist in low-resource healthcare systems.
As the Operations Coordinator for EWH, what does your role involve?
I oversee our global network of EWH Chapters, our K-12 education initiatives and our virtual programming offerings. Our Chapters are clubs, often run through universities, that further the mission of EWH by doing outreach in their communities, hosting speakers and events and attending our summer institutes. Managing all of these programs keeps me very busy but I really enjoy working with students at all levels who have an interest in and a passion for science, engineering and improving global health!
