The Fall Season Brings New Possibilities!

GlobeMed at Northwestern is back in session again for the school year. This past Monday was our first meeting with all of new members! We are so excited to get started with the year as as our new members are enthusiastic, hard-working, and passionate. 

Our first campaign of the year is coming up soon: Our first annual Holiday Sweater Drive is happening in November. We will be collecting sweaters from various thrift stores and selling it to students for low prices. We're really excited for this drive!


The GROW team came back from their trip in Mid-September and had an absolutely amazing experience. They met everyone at Adonai and raved about how amazing the organization is and the efforts Adonai Family Centre is making to create change in their community. They were able to implement a water tank system and conduct community health needs assesment for continuing projects in the future. We have been extremely excited for this partnership and now the trip has only confirmed that this will be a mutually beneficial relationship. Thank you for staying with us and continuing your support for us!

Summer Updates- Our First Trip To Uganda!

As the school year was wrapping up, we hosted our 2nd annual Globemed 5K/Fun Run during Memorial Day Weekend. It was a great success and had over 50 participants attend the either the 5K or Fun Run. We also held fundraiser events at Coldstone Creamery and Cheesie's where we got a cut of the restaurant's profits for that night. We are excited to continue relationships with Evanston businesses and hopefully conduct more restaurant nights in the fall.

As summer is going along, Globemed at Northwestern his hitting the final stretch of preparation before our GROW (Grassroots On-site Work) team heads off to Namugoga, Uganda. They leave on August 4th and will be staying about a month conducting research on sanitation and hopefully understanding more the needs of this community. This will be Globemed at Northwestern's first trip to Namugoga, Uganda and we are so excited to start what will be an amazing and mutually beneficial relationship with the Adonai Famil Centre. We are on our way to accomplishing our fundraising goal in order to successfully build a latrine, water tank, and visitors center at Adonai. We are so excited for the GROW team to come back with meaningful experiences and lessons so we can continuously work on building this relationship.

Thank you so much for your support throughout the year of 2013. Our goals would not be realized without you and we are incredibly grateful for your efforts. We are excited for what next year will bring and we hope you are too!

Spring Updates--GlobeMed Summit and Fundraising Efforts

GlobeMed at Northwestern recently started our final, and busiest, quarter of the academic year. Just two weeks ago, the GlobeMed Summit took place in Evanston, IL on the Northwestern University Campus. Students from GlobeMed chapters all around the country came to hear from experts in public and global health as well as learn about GlobeMed programming across the nation.

Currently, we are planning our Second Annual 5K and Fun Run which will take place next month. The morning will start with a 5K race followed by a “fun run” comprised of various obstacles such as leap frogging, wheel barrowing, hopscotch, a three-legged race, and more. Additionally, we will be having smaller fundraisers at local businesses throughout the quarter--all to raise money for our projects at the Adonai Child Development Center.

Our GROW (GrassRoots On-site Work) team of students is busily preparing themselves to travel to Namugoga this summer to conduct research in the area and establish what we hope to be a meaningful and long-lasting relationship with the Adonai Center. We are still working towards our fundraising goal so that we can successfully build a compostable latrine, water tank, and visitor’s center for Adonai. Thanks for keeping up with us and for your continued support throughout 2013!
