PROFESSOR LORENZO HOPPER

Faculty Advisor

Lorenzo Hopper, Lecturer here at UNCC with my Ph.D. in Maternal and Child Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My passions surround Father Engagement and the impacts on child development/health; reducing/eliminating health disparities; minority health; and the first generation college student's experience. I love working out (weight lifting) and spending time with my family and 6 year old Bulloxer named Bruno.

SURASYA GUDURU

CO-President

My name is Surasya Guduru, and I am serving as Co-President of AMWHO UNCC. I am a sophomore student studying International Studies and Psychology with a minor in Political Science. Through AMWHO, I have been able to find forums to actively engage my deep interest in healthcare policy on all levels of reach: beginning with the Charlotte community and extending all the way up to the international stage. AMWHO is an organization that draws in the brightest and most passionate minds in public health and policy studies (among countless other fields). I can't wait to see all that AMWHO UNCC has in store this unique year!

MEREL DEVANEY

Co-President

My name is Merel Devaney, and I am serving as the Co-President for AMWHO UNCC. I am a junior student studying Public Health and Spanish. AMWHO has given me the opportunity to learn about a variety of health issues around the globe that I would normally not be exposed to. In addition, AMWHO has given me the opportunity to network with a group of like-minded individuals. In my free time, I keep busy with paint-by-numbers and visiting new places.

TYRA FAVORITE

Co-Director of Campus Affairs

My name is Tyra Favorite, and I am serving as a Co-Director of Campus Affairs. I am a junior majoring in Public Health with a minor in International Studies and Spanish from Raleigh, North Carolina. For me, AMWHO was the perfect blend of Public Health, International Studies, and Diplomacy that also allowed me to build connections with those at UNC Charlotte as well as those at other universities/colleges across the country. Outside of AMWHO, I am either catching up on a TV series with all my favorite snacks, listening to music, hanging with friends, or running to a meeting!

KAVYA KUMAR

Co-Director of Campus Affairs

My name is Kavya Kumar, and I am serving as the Co-Director of Campus Affairs for AMWHO UNCC. I am a junior studying Public Health and Health Systems Management from Morrisville, North Carolina. AMWHO has broadened my awareness of the range of global health concerns. I have gained knowledge on policy-making and parliamentary procedure, all while connecting with people who have similar interests as me. Aside from AMWHO, I am a photographer and enjoy hiking.
