Project Report | Mar 11, 2019

Hello!

Hope everybody's spring has been going well. GlobeMed at CU Boulder has been quite busy since our last update, and we sincerely apologize for the late report!

In our last report, we mentioned our annual Benefit Dinner. Some of you already know but ultimately, due to some challenges internally and externally our chapter decided not to go through with Benefit Dinner this year. As a whole we just felt like we wouldn't be able to put on the Benefit Dinner that Himalayan Health Care and our other community partners deserve. We're very sorry, but in the foreseeable future, we hope to reorganize the planning of this dinner and provide improved experiences for everyone involved.

Thank you very much to those who did express interest in the dinner! While Benefit Dinner has been our largest fundraising event in past years, we have decided to refocus our efforts this semester on more mid-sized events and activities to bring more awareness to GlobeMed and Himalayan Health Care. We have found some success with this change in direction and also had a lot of fun in trying out these new event ideas! 

In terms of specific updates from our chapter, we are very excited to announce that we have selected our 5 GROW interns for this summer! All have been steadily preparing for their trip to Nepal through means of education, exercise, and outreach. A couple of weeks ago, all of them and another GlobeMed member spent a weekend in Chicago, Illinois attending GlobeMed Summit, which is the national GlobeMed annual conference. The theme of the conference was "Changing the Way Change Happens" and the group of them were able to attend a number of workshops that addressed topics of identity, diversity, action, and justice from a public health perspective.

Not only were they able to bring back what they learned to our chapter, but they also had the opportunity to meet other GlobeMed chapters from all over the nation. An interesting aspect in these encounters is that all GlobeMed chapters share similar values, but face different challenges depending on their nonprofit partners. We believe Summit was ultimately very meaningful for our interns and our overall chapter, as we reflected on how we can take these learnings and improve upon our actions for change in context of global health equity.

As always, we want to express our gratitude of your continuous consideration and support of our organization. GlobeMed at CU relies on the support of our community members in order to make progress towards our mission of health equity for all, so we hope you're able to connect with the experiences we've shared and recognize the positive impact that you are also making.

Please check out our website if you would like to keep in touch with us! That is where we will provide our most up to date information on our work and activities.
