SheffWHO 2020 is a simulation of World Health Assembly, third to be held in Sheffield. It is an educational event that allows participants to recreate the process of the World Health Assembly held at the World Health Organisation (WHO) at its Headquarters in Geneva. SheffWHO 2020 is to be held on 27-29th March, 2020. This event will allow students and professionals to participate as delegates in different roles. Register with us by 20th March, 2020 to be a part of this event.
The theme for this years simulation is ‘Health in the Digital World’. Tickets will be going on sale this Friday! You will be able to get the tickets from the SU website. For further information ask our ambassador, or contact us on facebook.
We know how it feels to be stressed and lost and trying to find directions, so we thought that we’d post a map of the route from the train station. (For those of you who are based in Sheffield, registration will take place from 12pm onwards on Friday 27th March on the ground floor of ScHARR at Regent Court.)
On the map below, Sheffield Train Station is marked “A”, and your destination (ScHARR) is marked “B”. The bus interchange is marked with the orange pin. We’ve highlighted the route with the most landmarks (not necessarily the quickest). We advise entering ScHARR from the north side of the courtyard, opposite an old church. We’ll try to direct you as much as possible when you get here too!
Reach out to us on social media if you’re lost. We can’t wait to meet you!
Since we’ve opened for registration, many of you have asked us the question, “What do I get in return for my registration?” Here is a list of perks that we could think of, off the tops of our heads:
Dynamic local and international speakers including: doctors quarantined during the Ebola crisis and Directors of Public Health England.
Training and toolkits to help build your skill set in global health, diplomacy, debate and writing.
Hot lunches and tea/coffee breaks.
An engaging social and networking event.
Certificates of participation and awards for best delegates.
Access to an engaged network of participants that will be a resource for global health jobs, events, and training.
Career building for persons considering a role in global health/public health.
Real world impact in global health – as work that is produced at this conference will be submitted to WHO HQ in Geneva to highlight the skills and ideas of the next generation of global health practitioners.
In reality, we think that there will probably be so much more for each individual. After all, our founders attended a similar event and came back to create SheffWHO! While we don’t expect that level of effort from you, we hope that you will also come away from the event with something unique, whether it be new friendships or skills or something else. Come and discover for yourself!
We’ve included the conference overview and the delegate roles documents on one of our previous posts, but in case it is difficult to find, here are the documents again. Stay tuned for more details! We are preparing many things in the background for you, and can’t wait to reveal them! And don’t forget that registration is still open, but only for a limited time!
