Meet the chairs that lead the committee!
Dear Delegates, I am honored to welcome you all to the United Nations World Health Organization Council at AUCMUN 2023! I’m Giorgia Pizzo and I am beyond excited to be serving as your chair for the World Health Organization Council (WHO). I am very delighted to chair a committee that will challenge you to be innovative in creating the solutions that you want to see in the world. This is my first year on the AUCMUN staff, I am very excited and enthusiastic about this experience! I sincerely hope that you will have fun while learning a lot about yourself and the World Health Organization.
I was born in Italy and I spent my school years near Venice. I am currently a first-year Bachelor’s student at the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands, where I am majoring in International and European Law. During high school, I debated internationally as a delegate at NHSMUN 2020 in the WHO committee and in 2021 as part of the UNHRC Committee. I am grateful for such experiences because I had the unique opportunity to challenge myself and to see myself grow from an inexperienced delegate to a confident chair. I hope to facilitate an experience that inspires you in the same way as it happened to me when I was younger. Aside from academics, I am the President of the ESN Groningen Network Committee, the Deputy Editor in Chief of ELSA Groningen Law Review, and a member of the Nexus External Affairs Committee. My other hobbies include travelling, sports, and languages.
This session will deal with two important topics regarding overmedication leading to antibiotic resistance, which to these days embody one of the top ten global public health and development threats: Topic A, “Overmedication/overprescription of certain drugs” and Topic B, “Medical procedures being endangered by non-active antibiotics”.
