Dear Prospective Delegates and Esteemed Colleagues,
Kody Oliver & Elizabeth Kosco
Co-Directors, AMWHO Oklahoma
President & Conference Co-Director
Kody Oliver is a senior from Oklahoma City double majoring in Chemical Biosciences and Economics with a minor in medical humanities.

AMWHO Conferences provide him with priceless policy-making experience that he hopes to one day transition to a career fostering improved health outcomes for those needing it most.

Vice-President & Conference Co-Director
Hey guys! My name is Elizabeth Kosco (but you can call me Lizzy) and I'm your Dias Director! On top of that I will be a Dias Chair for the AMRO region and I am so excited to teach you about the world of AMWHO! I'm a Freshman International Businesses major with a Pre-law track so I'm definitely planning on going to law school. I love everything public speaking and debate and have several years of experience in Model United Nations, making AMWHO my bread and butter. I also really love talking and meeting people so feel free to approach me anytime during the conference and I promise you won't be disappointed!
Director of Outreach & Logistics
Wendy Han is a junior from St. Louis, Missouri double majoring in International Studies and Economics and minoring in Spanish. She joined AMWHO because she is passionate about global health, specifically health equity. As Director of Outreach & Logistics, Wendy is excited to work with groups across campus and the Norman community to initiate activities and dialogue about public health. Outside of AMWHO, Wendy can be found spontaneously napping, leading a volunteer team with OU Student Heroes, and interning with I-CCEW.
Director of Publicity & Media
My name is Thomas Portier. I am a sophomore studying Biology with a minor in Spanish. I am interested in the spread of infectious disease especially by insects. I joined AMWHO in order to gain a greater understanding of the health problems that impact us both locally and globally. Outside of AMWHO and academics, I enjoy playing soccer, cooking, and posting a whole lot on Twitter.
Treasurer & Director of Finance
Hailing from South Florida, Jed Casauay is a sophomore Pre-Med student majoring in Biology and minoring in Spanish. Having grown up in a family full of health care professionals, he joined AMWHO to gain a broader perspective on the medical field and its broader impacts within society. This is his first year as member of the AMWHO executive team, and he hopes to be able to work with other health organizations to better inform the student body on important public health issues. Outside of AMWHO, Jed can be found discussing rap albums in great detail and singing as part of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.
