Students for Global Health – University of Southampton Team
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

So I guess I’ll start off with my own update, having disappeared for a while!
After finally being offered a training contract to practice as a patent attorney, I decided to pass the offer to work in oncology.

It’s not a decision I made overnight and I wouldn’t recommend anyone to do so without a clear plan and experience to back it up.
