GlobeMed at University of Cincinnati

GlobeMed at University of Cincinnati (UC) is charged with inspiring the next generation of global health leaders through the mobilization of undergraduate students for the movement for global health equity. We believe that health is a human right and a matter of social justice. By doing what we can from where we are, we can help to ensure that no one needs to die of a treatable disease because of where he or she was born. On a local level, GlobeMed at UC uses the national GlobeMed curriculum to hold GlobalhealthU educational sessions every week. These are open to staff and general campus community members with an interest in learning more about health disparities around the world. We also...

GlobeMed at UC, May 2015 Update

Dear GlobeMed at UC Supporters

As our 2014-2015 school year comes to a close, we would like to begin by thanking you for the support and encouragement that you have demonstrated in the past year and since the beginning of our project. Looking ahead, we have many new events in the works and many new ideas to implement, and we can't wait to share them all with you!

In 2014, we were able to fund and implement the third phase of our Community Health Outreach Program (CHOP) and create a personal and dental hygiene curriculum for our workshops. This phase allowed us to broaden our reach into migrant schools and begin health education at a much younger age. We have been able to directly impact over 1,500 Burmese men, women, and children with our project. All of this would not have been possible without you - our amazing supporters. With your donations, we have been able to complete three projects - each a phase in CHOP - and touch the lives of over 3,000 Burmese migrants. We appreciate the incredible network of supporters we have developed and we tell our partner, Social Action for Women, just how much help we receive in order to implement our projects.

Throughout the next year, we plan to finish fundraising for the fourth phase of CHOP, which will be an extension of all three of our previous phases. We want to hold more workshops for more people and include all the topics previously discussed: reproductive health, preventative health, mental health, and personal/dental hygiene. We hope to directly impact 3,600 Burmese migrants and indirectly impact 6,000 more through the subsequent dissemination of the material covered. In order to execute this phase, we are hoping to raise $8,000 by June 2015. We have already raised about $6,500 this year through on-campus events and personal donations, but we still need your help! Any amount that you can donate will be greatly appreciated, no matter how small. Every summer several of our students travel to Mae Sot, Thailand to work directly with our partner to develop the strongest and most sustainable partnership that we possibly can, so you can be assured that your donations are going directly to where they are needed most.

We are so thankful for you, as your support and dedication to us have continued unrelentingly over the past years. We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have such a generous support network of friends, family, and community members. 

Yours in Health,

Juliana Madzia, Sami Nandyal, and the entire GlobeMed at UC Chapter

GlobeMed at UC, February 2015 Update

Dear GlobeMed at UC Supporters,

Happy new year! As we enter 2015, GlobeMed at UC is excited about all of the our upcoming events and grateful for all of the things we were able to accomplish last year with your support. 

In 2014, we were able to fund and implement the thid phase of our Community Health Outreach Program (CHOP) and create a personal and dental hygiene curriculum for our workshops. This phase allowed us to broaden our reach into migrant schools and begin health education at a much younger age. We have been able to directly impact over 1,500 Burmese men, women, and children with our project. All of this would not have been possible if it were not for our amazing supporters. With your donations, we have been able to complete three projects - each a phase in CHOP - and touch the lives of over 3,000 Burmese migrants. We appreciate the incredible network of supporters we have developed and we tell our partner, Social Action for Women, just how much help we receive in order to implement our projects. 

This upcoming year, we plan to finish fundraising for the fourth phase of CHOP which will be an extension of all three of our previous phases. We want to hold more workshops for more people and include all the topics previously discussed: reproductive health, preventative health, mental health, and personal/dental hygiene. We hope to directly impact 3,600 Burmese migrants and indirectly impact 6,000 more through the subsequent dissemination of the material covered. In order to execute this phase, we are hoping to raise $10,000 by June 2015. We have already raised about 40% of our goal through on-campus events and personal donations, but we still need help!

As a supporter of our organization, we are reaching out to you first. While we continue to grow our support network, we still rely on our dedicated donors and supporters who have been with us since the founding of our organization at University of Cincinnati. We hope you will consider helping us - even a $10 makes a difference!

We are so grateful for everyone who has taken the time to learn about our organization and supported us for the past three years! Thank you for being amazing friends, family members, and generous community members. We are so lucky to have you all.

Yours in Health,

Ceejay Boyce, Codee Boyce, & the entire GlobeMed at UC Chapter

GlobeMed at UC, November 2014 Update

Children at a migrant school in Mae Sot, Thailand

Dear GlobeMed at University of Cincinnati Supporters,

 

We are excited to update you on the start of the 2014/15 year! Our chapter has been fortunate enough to have added nearly 40 new members this fall, and we cannot wait to see what we can all do together to make a difference in the movement for global health equity and social justice. As we start our year filled with raising awareness, fundraising for our project, and sharing our passion for our work with others, we wanted to stop and say thank you to all the amazing people who have made our three successful years as a chapter possible - including you!

Since our humble beginning in 2011, our chapter has grown from 16 founding members to over 75 staff members and alumni! We have raised nearly $38,000 and implemented three successful health education projects in the rural Burmese migrant worker villages in the Phop Phra district of Thailand. We have been recognized by our university as an organization that promotes global health equity and provides education to other students about how they can make an impact, a tangible difference, in this world. This has all been made possible because of the support you have shown our organization, and for that we thank you. 

This year, we have established a fundraising goal of $10,000 to implement a new phase in our overarching program - the Community Health Outreach Program - which provides Burmese migrants who live in rural villages in western Thailand with health education regarding reproductive health, preventative health, mental health, and hygiene. We are working to expand our programs to a younger population by starting educational programs in migrant schools and constantly training Peer Educators to be sources of knowledge in each of these migrant communities. In order to keep our programs going and expand them, we ask that you consider supporting us again this year. To us, your support can look like many different things - from monetary donations to spreading the word about our work. All we ask is that you think about maintaining your spot in our support network and being a part of our movement. 

As the calendar year reaches its end, GlobeMed at UC is looking to all the events yet to come this academic year and we cannot wait to share our accomplishments with you!

 

Yours in Health,
