GlobeMed at Cornell and CEPAIPA have had a very busy and exciting summer! Two of our Globemed members, Jo and Becky, traveled to La Libertad to spend a month with CEPAIPA. They were there for the opening of the lab and we couldn’t be more excited abut it. We still have a little over $1,000 to raise for the lab to pay for basic materials such as needles, syringes and tubes, as well as salaries for the staff.
GlobeMed at Cornell's GROW chair, Jo, reflected on her time with CEPAIPA:
We are so proud to have had the opportunity to conduct GlobeMed @ Cornell's first every full length GROW internship and to meet everyone in our partner organization. Our GROW team has returned to the States with renewed energy and determination to continue the fight for global health equity.
Please take a look at the video blogs Jo and Becky put together to learn more about their time and experience this summer! http://globemedatcornell.wordpress.com/2013/06/13/grow-summer-2013-hola-from-la-libertad/
With the start of a new school year, we are all motivated and excited to continue to strengthen our partnership with CEPAIPA. We thank you again for your generous support, and we hope you stay tuned for progress on the project and more on CEPAIPA’s work in La Libertad! Stay updated and enjoy numerous photos by liking CEPAIPA’s, and GlobeMed at Cornell’s Facebook pages.
