Angela Gauthier: I’m a senior pre-med majoring in Neuroscience. I joined GlobeMed because it gives us students a chance to use our knowledge, time, and resources to make an impact in the world and in the lives of others less fortunate. I particularly support the group’s organization because it allows us the opportunity to make long-term personal connections with a specific group of people and be directly involved in improving their circumstances.
Nikki Sachdeva: I am a ’15 at Dartmouth College from Plano, TX. I plan to major in Government and minor in Public Policy. My main interests lie in public health policy and social justice, and I hope to one day increase the accessibility, affordability, and accountability of health care in the developing world. I am extremely drawn to and humbled by GlobeMed’s goals of global health equity and international unity as I firmly believe health is a human right. I love to travel, read, doodle, and have spontaneous dance parties.
Leigh Ann Humphries: I’m a ’13 at Dartmouth College, majoring in Biology with minors in Public Policy and Ethics. I am incredibly proud of the chapter that we have become in just a single year! Through collaborative projects and an amazing GROW trip to Thailand, GlobeMed at Dartmouth has been able to lay the groundwork for a strong and sustainable partnership for years to come. From my time in Thailand spent working alongside our friends at KWAT, I feel so closely connected to the community we serve. I am so happy to continue GlobeMed’s impact by fulfilling the position of co-Campaigns Coordinator. In addition to GlobeMed, I direct the Dartmouth Cancer Scholars program at Norris Cotton Cancer Center, where I am also involved in laboratory research on leukemia. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis and basketball, reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
Katelyn Wong: I am a ’15 from Connecticut planning on majoring in neuroscience with minors in anthropology and Spanish. After serving as a Director of Community Building last year and getting to know all of the staff and Eboard members, I’m extremely excited for another successful year with the passionate members at GlobeMed at Dartmouth. I am grateful for the strong community and cohesiveness of our chapter and our close ties with our partner KWAT. I am excited to connect with new and returning members through our events this year. Outside of GlobeMed, I am involved in neurobiology research at DHMC and Big Brother and Big Sister. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, swimming, and spending time with my friends and family.
Global Health University Coordinators
Zuo Ming Koh: I’m a sophomore at Dartmouth College, majoring in Economics and Government. I’m from Singapore, and having traveled extensively throughout Southeast Asia, the realization that health standards are so deplorable in many parts of the region that I have come to love impelled me to act. That is why I joined GlobeMed. In addition, having previously worked on projects that sought to raise awareness for the refugees along the Thai-Burmese border, the opportunity to work with the Kachin Women’s Association of Thailand through GlobeMed was one that I simply could not pass up. In my free time I enjoy watching and playing soccer (it’s called football where I’m from, but I’ll let it slide this once), and my favorite team is Liverpool. I also like going to the movies, watching plays, hanging out with friends, and reading.
Aditi Misra: I am a ’14 planning on majoring in Biomedical Engineering. I was initially attracted to GlobalMed because of its unique style of engaging its members in direct service. It has been a great experience and I look forward to seeing our chapter grow. Besides being part of an awesome E-board, I’m a member of the Dartmouth College fencing team. When I am alone, I enjoy reading books in front of a fire with hot chocolate.
Director of Individual Giving, Webmaster:
Andy Zureick: I was born and raised just outside of Detroit, and I’m a senior at Dartmouth majoring in Chemistry. I founded GlobeMed at Dartmouth in April 2011, and I’ve been amazed with what we have accomplished so far! After serving as External Co-President during our chapter’s first year, I’m excited to take on a new role as our Director of Individual Giving. Outside of GlobeMed, I’m the President of the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science, engaged in catalysis research in the Chemistry department, and very involved in Dartmouth’s Chamber Music program. After graduating from Dartmouth, I will be starting medical school with hopes of pursuing a career in academic medicine.
Director of Publicity
Erin Becks: I’m a ’15 at Dartmouth College from Baltimore, MD. I am planning to be a veterinarian and am hoping to double major in Environmental Studies and Biology. I was initially drawn to GlobeMed because of its fantastic goals and effective means of providing aid to their partner organization. Since last year, my love for this organization has grown exponentially. Each individual branch is absolutely amazing, and the entire organization is inspiring. It is truly an honor to work with GlobeMed in any way, and I cannot wait to spread their message.
Directors of Communication
Jessica Gerson: I am a sophomore at Dartmouth College from Bethesda, MD. I am currently planning on majoring in government with a minor in Spanish. I joined GlobeMed because I believe in this model of community service and I am passionate about global health. I have really enjoyed my involvement with this organization thus far and cannot wait to see our chapter grow! Outside of GlobeMed, I write for the campus newspaper, am involved in OLE, an outdoor leadership and teamwork-building program that works with kids from a local middle school in New Hampshire, and I am a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. In my free time I enjoy running, reading, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
Ayesha Dholakia: I am a rising junior at Dartmouth College and am pre-med, majoring in Neuroscience, and minoring in Public Policy. I became involved in GlobeMed because of my passion for global health and for GlobeMed’s unique dedication to raising awareness in addition to fundraising. I believe that there are many issues we face today that transcend national boundaries or cultural borders, such as human rights and reproductive health issues, and am thus committed to GlobeMed’s mission to tackle such issues through cooperation and relationship building. On campus, I am also a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters, I dance with Vandana, a South Asian dance group, and do research through the Education Department.
Director of Community Building
Heather Szilagyi: I’m a sophomore at Dartmouth and GlobeMed’s Director of Community Building. I have been fencing for about six years and am a member of the Dartmouth Fencing Club. On campus, I also write for the news section of The Dartmouth, the College’s independent newspaper. I am probably a Government major with an Arabic minor, as well as either a major or minor in Geography. I became involved in GlobeMed my freshman Fall because I loved the structure of the organization. I love being able to see the difference we make through direct work and the development of a long-term partnership with a community. The national network is also great for support and extraordinarily inspiring. GlobeMed at Dartmouth is still a new organization, and I think we have the ability to build it from the bottom up and continue making it an extremely influential group on campus!
GROW Trip Coordinator
Nina Boal: I’m a 14 pre-med majoring in Geography with a concentration in International Development and minoring in Biology. I originally joined GlobeMed because of my interest in global health and it has allowed me to give back and connect directly with our grassroots organization KWAT. I feel like I know exactly what my efforts are going towards- allowing us to focus our efforts and be more effective. On campus I am a member of Alpha Phi, I am a drug and alcohol peer advisor, a member of green team, and I do research at DHMC.
