WILLIAMS COLLEGE CHAPTER

Mission: 

Community Education and Inpatient Clinic:
Psychosis Intervention in Uganda

"Mental health is an integral part of health and well-being that can be impacted by a range of socioeconomic factors ranging from income level to access to resources. Conceptualized as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community,”. Mental health is not only a
global public good but a fundamental right for all people"

Emma Tapscott, 
Programming 
& Fundraising Chair

 As a fervent reader, I am passionate about the power of literature to push us outside of ourselves; I believe that writers essentially teach us how to live, in affirming that all human beings have dignity, agency, and narratives that deserve our imagination. As I consider careers after college, I hope to translate that passion for people’s stories into actual change and connection

Grace Kim, 
Communications
& Social Chair 

 

After experiencing life in the Iganga district for a month, the realities of stark contrast between my life in Iowa. I gained a heightened passion to ensure accessible, reliable healthcare for lower income communities.
 I believe that every person has a niche they can fill in the world of global health, whether it is connecting to potential donors or educating college students on issues rarely in the headlines

Chelsea Taylor, Recruitment &
Internal Operations Chair

 I believe that it is imperative to use my position of privilege as a Williams student and US citizen to further access to healthcare on a global scale in order to better the lives of those in underserved communities.

Stephanie Teng,
Treasurer, National Organizational Chair

 I firmly believe that we have the necessary resources and ability to address our most urgent needs as a species, but we are not using our potential to the fullest. I want to help everyone reach their full potential, discover the power of knowledge within themselves, and progress along with others in search of a better future
