Jayati Verma is a junior at Columbia University majoring in applied math and biology, and is currently the Co-
President of GlobeMed at Columbia. GlobeMed is a national organization that aims to improve global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together in long term partnerships; Columbia's chapter is partnered with Gulu Women's Economic Development and Globalization (GWED­G), located in Gulu, Uganda. Since 2008, GWED­G and GlobeMed at Columbia have been working on a project to reduce HIV/AIDS and improve maternal health in the community. Post graduation, Jayati seeks to carry forward the values behind GlobeMed's project with GWED­G of sustainability, looking at health in a holistic way, and listening to a community's needs, because she believes they are central to effective global health work. She is also interested in healthcare policy and system management, and the intersection between health, technology, and data.
