This year, the Public Health Think Tank core team has expanded to introduce two new members! Alaa Soliman and Maha Abdullah, both students at Fatima College of Health Sciences, have kindly taken on the role of Outreach Associates. Their role in this year’s conference is to help further promote intercollegiate communication and collaboration. Learn more about them below:
Alaa Soliman is a pharmacy student at Fatima College of Health Sciences, from Egypt, Cairo. Aside from her great interest in biology and pathophysiology, she is also interested in historical mythologies and modern Asian culture including anime and Korean pop music. She sees caramel as a magical potion that will brighten gloomy days. She first became involved with PHTT as a participant last year, where she become fond of the idea, seeing it as noble steps for youth to contribute to society and change it for the better. She thinks it is amazing to be part of PHTT Core team 2016, for it offers the opportunity to meet new people and getting new valuable experiences.
Maha Abdullah was born and raised in Abu Dhabi and is studying physiotherapy at Fatima College of Health Sciences. She aspires to become a pediatric physiotherapist because she loves kids (obviously), as well as running, exercising, books, food, movies, sarcasm, Italy, and her friends. She is very talkative and could start up a conversation with anyone and become friends and never know their name (sorry!) This is her first time volunteering in the Public Health Think Tank.
