I want to build on the work of previous InciSioN UK committees, improving our reach and impact. I want to work closely with the wider InciSioN network to achieve meaningful international collaboration. Finally, I want to effectively guide and support the committee in carrying out their fantastic plans for the year ahead.

As a Vice-Chair I want to continue growing InciSioN UK, emphasising the need for including global surgery into medical school curricula, as well as advocating for safe and affordable surgery for all. This year, I also want to work with other InciSioN National Working Groups, so we can create a truly international collaborative environment.
