Letter from your Chair

Dear Delegates,

My name is Avery Einhorn, and I will be serving as your chair for the Center for Disease Control circa 2017 crisis committee at BruinMUN. Aishwarya (your Crisis Director) and I are incredibly excited about this committee and we hope that you are too!

I am a second-year studying Computer Science and minoring in Public Affairs. I’m an east coaster, through and through, but I have enjoyed my time in LA immensely thus far. UCLA has allowed me to explore my passions and discover new ones. My overlapping interests in technology and the public sector have shaped much of my life, including my involvement in Model United Nations.

I was first introduced to Model UN during my freshman year of high school, and I initially resisted being drawn in because in my head I was a mock trial kid. Little did I know the vast world of opportunity and learning that Model UN would go on to open for me. Five years later, I have competed at conferences across the country, winning a few awards here and there. I serve on the Executive Board of Model United Nations at UCLA as the Director of Technology, and I am a member of our travel team and [obviously] conference staff.

Aishwarya and I are so excited to grapple with the issues that faced the CDC in 2017, and we know that you are up to the challenge. That being said, if you have any questions at all, either now, or during the conference, we want to be a resource to you as much as possible. Do not hesitate to ask questions and to struggle with some of the tough issues you will be faced with.

Letter from your Crisis Director

Dear Delegates,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to BruinMUN XXVII! My name is Aishwarya Natarajan and I will be your Crisis Director for the Center for Disease Control 2017. I am beyond excited to tackle this committee and the issues associated with it with you all. First, a little about myself: I’m a fourth year Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology major and a Global Studies minor and hoping to pursue medicine. This is my seventh year of MUN, having been able to run committees at BruinMUN and our college conference, LAMUN as well as compete with our travel team over the past three years. This will be my last BruinMUN, and last year of MUN so I know Avery and I will be working to make this committee an amazing experience for everyone involved.

Public Health is one of my favorite topics, one that I think is often overlooked but affects every individual in America. The year 2017 was a particularly difficult one for the CDC, facing numerous issues of a changing presidency such as proposed budget cuts, along with worldwide outbreaks, and natural disasters. I thought this committee would be a particularly relevant one, and an educational experience for high school students to learn and critique the healthcare system in America. I’m hoping that this committee fosters a high level of debate and well-thought out solutions to very real problems, and that you all have an amazing time!

In this year’s BruinMUN we strive to accomplish diversity and inclusion with a host of different committees, and we will work to make sure this committee is in line with that goal. This is also welcome to all levels of delegates, and we will do our best to explain things if needed! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us about any clarification or questions you might have before the conference, and I’m looking forward to meeting you all!
