Q. How are you working to #beatNCDs?
A. As an AMMEF Mexico member, I have done a lot of things to #beatNCDs. First, I have helped other medical students to understand their importance of and learn more about NCDs by organizing conferences, symposiums and other academic activities in order to build capacity in the future health workforce. Second, I have attended and organised some events with the community to both raise awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyles for preventing NCDs and teach strategies for those who have NCDs to prevent further complications. Finally, I have attended many events representing my organisation to raise the voice of medical students on this subject, and to show the decision makers that we can participate in all aspects of the health system, especially to #beatNCDs.
