Who We Are
Since its founding in 2006, GlobeMed has striven to promote sustainable, grassroots partnerships and public health education at home and abroad. We believe in a three pronged approach. First, we partner with the Adonai Child Development Centre in Namugoga, Uganda, which provides education and healthcare for orphaned or vulnerable children and the community at large. We have annual fundraising campaigns to generate resources to fund projects like expanding the medical center or buying an ultrasound. Second, we educate ourselves though lessons at every chapter meeting. We have small group discussions about public health issues around the world. We also put on advocacy events that are open to everyone on campus ranging from expert panels to letter writing campaigns. Finally, every summer three to five members have the opportunity to travel to the Adonai Centre. They live at the center and work with the staff on capacity building projects and growing the partnership. We hope to train the next generation of global health leaders and make a positive impact on our communities, in Evanston and Uganda.
