Fall 2012 GlobeMed Update

GlobeMed at Northwestern just completed our fall recruitment, and we are very excited to continue promoting our mission on campus with 23 new and 33 returning members this year!   Our biggest change this year is that we are transitioning from our partnership with the H.O.P.E. Center to the Adonai Child Development Center in Namugoga, Uganda.  We are sad to wrap up our partnership with the H.O.P.E Center after working with them for seven incredible years but are proud to say that they have become a self-sustainable NGO. It has been rewarding to see both their and our hard work come to fruition, and we are confident that they will be to be able to support their community on their own through the continuation of the Nutrition Project.

During our first two meetings this year, we discussed the importance of building and maintaining sustainable partnerships with health clinics abroad in order to make tangible changes in the lives of others.  As a group of students with diverse interests and backgrounds, GlobeMed is able to brainstorm ways of bringing attention to global health issues locally and thinking about solutions for the future of global health by utilizing journalism majors, film majors, pre-medical students, and a variety of other students.  We look forward to combine our skills to design projects for our new partnership with the Adonai Child Development Center. Their focus on caring for and improving the health of children orphaned due to AIDS and civil unrest is a cause that we are passionate about and look forward to learning more about.

Keep an eye out for details about our new project page on Global Giving--we hope that you will continue to support us as we embark on a new partnership!

GlobeMed at Northwestern Report July 2012

GlobeMed at Northwestern 5K Fun Run!
GlobeMed at Northwestern 5K Fun Run!

As the year came to a close for GlobeMed at Northwestern, we looked back on a very successful year of fundraising, group activities, and thought-provoking debates. We are happy to report that we raised over $19,000, almost doubling the amount we raised last year and substantially increasing our ability to help the Malnutrition Program at the H.O.P.E Center. From our final chapter meeting to our end of the year barbecue, we reminisced over the success of the 5K/Fun Run fundraiser and World Day of Social Justice activities and we are now looking ahead to the GROW trip with the H.O.P.E Center this summer. It will be rewarding to see how our funds help the community firsthand, and we hope to create a documentary to share these moments with all of you who helped make this programs possible. Thanks for your support throughout the year, and we hope that you will continue to help the members of the Ho community over this summer and next school year!

April Updates

GlobeMed at Northwestern has participated in many events this quarter and has some exciting events to look forward to.  With our 5K/Fun Run coming up this weekend, we hope to raise more funds for our Malnutrition Program. Many members also attended the GlobeMed Summit in Evanston this month, which was filled with inspirational speeches and the brainstorming of many new ideas that our chapter plans to implement.  Please help us have a strong finish to our most successful year! With help from you, we hope to the chance to raise $20,000 dollars for the year – beating our goal by $5,000!  We really appreciate all your help and support this year, and the H.O.P.E Center would not be the same without all of you.
