GlobeMed at Truman State

GlobeMed at Truman State partners with Maison de Naissance, a grassroots maternal health clinic located in Larnage, Haiti, to improve the health of Haitians living in poverty. Our aim is to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering Truman State University students, our campus and our partner community to mobilize ideas, funds and other resources to target and eliminate maternal health problems in rural Haiti.

TSU's GlobeMed Spring 2015 Update

Truman’s GlobeMed chapter has launched a number of campaigns this semester and is planning many more throughout the spring. Thus far, we’ve hosted two benefit dinners—one in January and the other in February—and a game night. In addition, our small business coordinators conduct weekly on-campus sales of edible items as far ranging as chocolate chip pancakes and fried Oreos. Our new members are also in the process of planning their spring campaign.

Thanks to the devoted efforts of our members, GlobeMed has raised over $4,200 so far. We’ve set a goal of raising an additional $2,000 throughout the remainder of the semester via such campaigns as the Haitian Celebration and Global Health Action Week. Several of our campaigns this year involve collaborating with other Truman State University organizations. For example, one of our campaigns involves an obstacle course created via a partnership with Truman’s ROTC. Similarly, “GlobeSlam” will consist of a slam poetry presentation featuring poets from TruSlam, Truman’s slam poetry organization, and other "freelance" verbal artists. By creating these interdisciplinary opportunities, GlobeMed hopes to reach a greater audience at Truman and better inform our student body about Maison de Naissance.

Finally, GlobeMed is excited to announce that on April 17, TED Talk speaker Dr. Francis de los Reyes is coming to Truman to discuss his work in improving sanitation around the world. We also hope to recruit Truman faculty members for our weekly global health university sessions at general body meetings.

As always, we want to thank all of those who have graciously donated their time, talents, or resources to GlobeMed. Your kind support makes it possible for us to make a difference in the realm of global health equity, specifically involving Maison de Naissance and more broadly in terms of educating the public about this critical issue.

TSU's GlobeMed Fall 2014 Update

This semester, Truman’s chapter of GlobeMed launched multiple successful fundraising campaigns, including a game night, bar crawl, Oktoberfest bake sale, and global giving campaign. For their part, the new members conducted a “chicken bowl” sale (chicken bowls being a popular menu item in the Truman campus cafeterias). Finally, on December 6, GlobeMed will host a benefit dinner and art auction. Finally, GROW team applications have been distributed in preparation for a trip next year.

These efforts — in addition to small business sales around campus — have raised over $1,500, all of which goes directly to Maison de Naissance, ensuring that the birthing clinic can continue to aid those in need. As always, we would like to extend our deepest thanks to those who have donated their time, talent, or money to TSU’s chapter of GlobeMed. Maison de Naissance provides vital services for the people of Haiti. Your continued support plays a crucial role in facilitating this care, so sincerest thanks to everyone for your generous contributions. Please keep Maison de Naissance in mind this holiday season.

Spring 2014

This semester we had an excellent turn out for TSU Globemed fundraisng campaigns.  We put together an authentic Haitian Cuisine selling bowls of rice and beans in front of student union for our "Haitian Celebration", held our "Global Getdown" dance party at Wrong Daddy's Bar, and sold breakfast in the Magruder Hall for our week long "Breakfast Club" event. This along with some other smaller fundraisers and spontaneous donations helped make this a great semester for the our organization. Thanks for all the help we were able to provide nearly six thousand dollars to our partner Maison de Naissance in Haiti.
