Spring Time Brings Exciting Changes and Growth!

GlobeMed at Northwestern has had an exciting and dynamic past couple of months. We have had a few smaller fundraising campaigns such as bake sales and selling other items- raising altogether over $450. Many of our chapter members have just attended the GlobeMed National Summit. It was an opportune time to connect with other chapters, think critically about our own chapter, and reinvigorate our passions to continue partnering with the Adonai Centre to better the health of the Namugoga community. Shortly after the National Summit, Chicago GlobeMed chapters also held their own smaller conference and this was an important experience for Northwestern members. It not only gave us a chance to network with other chapters to improve the member experience, but also was a chance for Northwestern chapter members to strategize about our future and laying out concrete details for next steps. 

Looking forward, we are planning our spring quarter fundraising events. Our 3rd annual 5K/Fun Run is happening at the end of May and is open to anyone in the Evanston/Chicago area. During our weekly global health discussions, members have engaged in serious conversations about our partnership. We talked about the projects we are currently administering at Adonai and the importance of the partnership. These conversations are critical starting points for evaluating our partnership, understanding our impact, and improving measures for the following year.

As always, we want to continuously thank all of our supporters and donors! The global health equity movement involves everybody adn we cannot do what we do without all of you! We are extremely ecstatic of the new chapter co-presidents, Matt Zhou and Brittany Zelch, to take over and lead the chapter to great accomplishments next year. We hope you all are too!

Thank you to everyone for their holiday donations!

The holiday season has always been a time of generosity. GlobeMed at Northwestern is so incredibly grateful for the all of our donors and partners for letting us continue to make an impact in our chapter as well as in Uganda. Your thoughtfulness and kindess is how we can continue doing the great work we do.

 

The past couple months have been an exciting time for GlobeMed and our projects in Uganda. We have just completed the process of picking the next team to travel to Uganda this summer. This team has been working fervently on their goals and projects for the summer. They have been in constant contact with Aloysious and the Adonai Centre on expectations. There has been frequent collaboration and both sides are really excited for the trip. 

The chapter just engaged in a meaningful conversation about Ugandan history and current politics. It was a great chance for the members to learn not only about our partner more deeply, but a confirmation of why our project and partnership is so important. The Adonai Centre is an amazing organization for its community and we are incredibly excited to continue this relationship for the second year. We are looking forward to skyping with Aloysious and having more conversations about the clinic and visitors' center being built.

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!
