Who We Are
GlobeMed aims to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world. GlobeMed at Northwestern supports the efforts of the Adonai Child Development Centre in Namugoga, Uganda to provide for the needs of children orphaned by AIDS and the extended civil unrest in the Northern and Eastern parts of the country. We accomplish this through our yearly fundraising campaigns/events which connect the resources generated by students at Northwestern University to projects that GlobeMed supports. Each week during our general meetings, we have small group discussions about various public health issues, both at home and abroad. Additionally, we put on on-campus events through which we seek to engage students in critical thinking about our work with the Adonai Centre. Finally, each summer GlobeMed members have the opportunity to travel to the Adonai Centre to work in collaboration with the Centre staff on grassroots projects. Through this work, we seek to create a sustainable positive impact on the health of this community as well as inspire and train the next generation of global health leaders.
