Programs

GlobeMed at Penn State partners with a community organization called ACUDESBAL in Bajo Lempa, El Salvador to increase self-sustaining agriculture and child development. With the leaders of ACUDESBAL, we plan and implement child nutrition projects, including the building of community gardens and fisheries at daycare centers, nutrition education, increased latrine sanitation, kitchen re-modeling and oral hygiene programs. On the Penn State campus, we run fundraising campaigns to support this project. Additionally, we plan educational events on campus to get students talking about issues of global health and social justice. Our most important event is an annual Global Health Conference, where professors and outside speakers are invited to lead workshops and speak in order to engage students in the movement for global health equity.
