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!
