Summer 2013 Executive Board


Katelyn Wong   I am a ’15 from Connecticut planning on majoring in Neuroscience with a minor in  Spanish. After serving as the Campaigns Coordinator this past year and getting to know all of the staff and Eboard members, I’m extremely excited for a great summer 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. This summer, I hope to bond with all the 15s in GlobeMed and I’m excited to learn more about global health issues. Outside of GlobeMed, I am involved in neurobiology research at DHMC and Sigma Delta sorority. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, swimming, and spending time with my friends and family.

Campaign Coordinators

Delia O’Shea I’m a sophomore at Dartmouth College, here in my home state of New Hampshire! I’m majoring in Neuroscience and I’m on the pre-med track, which I love because it provides a great opportunity for a melding of basic science research and clinical applications. I’m also minoring in Hispanic Studies, and I can’t wait to study abroad in Madrid in the fall! I became involved with GlobeMed because it’s a great platform for getting involved with and fostering a passion for global health, and for implementing real and lasting change with a long-term partner. I’m also involved in piloting Dartmouth’s First Year Peer Mentoring program, as well as psychiatry research at DHMC and medical engineering and computer science research at Thayer. I love singing, dancing, cooking, and listening to music. I’m so excited to be working with GlobeMed this summer!


Julie Ivy I’m a ’15 pre-med at Dartmouth College, majoring in biology and minoring in international studies. GlobeMed has proved to be an incredible, rewarding way to pursue my interest in global health. We’re forming a close, sustainable relationship with our partner, KWAT, and for that reason, I think we can really make a positive impact on the lives of the Kachin refugees. I’m so excited to be a Campaigns Coordinator for the summer, and I hope we can welcome some new members this term! In addition to GlobeMed, I’m on the foil squad of Dartmouth’s fencing team, and I do research at DHMC. In my free time, I love baking, reading, and spending time with my friends and family.

ghU Coordinators 

Samantha Sherman Hi! I’m Sam and I am a member of the Class of 2015, double-majoring in Government and Spanish. I’ve been involved with GlobeMed since fall of my freshman year because I value our organization’s emphasis on a partnership model and member education in pursuit of global health equity. I’m excited to be part of GlobeMed because I think we really do make a positive change in the world! In addition to my involvement in GlobeMed, I’m research assistant for the Government Department, a member of the Latin American Political Society, and a sister of Kappa Delta.


Ana Marija Pongrac I’m a ’15 at Dartmouth College, majoring in Anthropology modified with Sociology and minoring in Public Policy. My main motivation for getting involved in GlobeMed at Dartmouth was sharing the passion for global health with fellow students whilst partnering with KWAT to bring about tangible improvements in healthcare delivery and services for Kachin refugees. Outside of GlobeMed, I serve as the Public Health Officer for Tucker’s Nicaragua CCESP, work in a pharmacology and toxicology lab at Geisel and intern for the Dickey Center. In my free time, I love traveling, swimming and engaging in random debates. I’m very excited about taking up the role of a gHU coordinator this summer and interacting with new and returning members through interactive workshops!
