When is the last time you really needed an advocate? How did you go about finding one?
There were a few times I genuinely needed professional advice. My tool of choice- books. Growing up on books, it was a natural reflex for me to find out how someone dealt with similar circumstances through their own stories. Ranging from raw autobiographies to court cases, all the way to black and white textbooks.
The problem: these books were sometimes over 20 years old and often not based in the UK. How do I contact the equivalent now, here?
But what does this have to do with medical school?
This summer I will be spending my first summer as a medical student, helping set up free healthcare camps in Bangladesh and we need you to help us reach our donation target of £2, 000!

Meet the President: Israa Fawaz
Why is Global Health important?
- It is important to focus on immediate issues in healthcare; both locally and globally
- Everyone has responsibility on a global level, to improve circumstances as we continue to advance faster than ever
- Things we take for granted are not the case is many parts of the world
- Factors we cannot change should not affect healthcare; background and ethnicity should not affect how long people live
Have you thought about returning to university after graduating?
Whether it’s for medicine, law, engineering or wherever your interests may lie, this one’s for anyone finding it difficult to take the leap, especially for females looking to get a second degree/post graduate qualifications.
