GlobeMed is a network of university students passionate about global health and social justice, who work to improve the health of those living in poverty by forming multi-year partnerships with grassroots organizations across the globe. At the University of Pennsylvania, we bring the GlobeMed model of sustainable partnership and peer education to our members, our campus, and our broader communities and networks through issue-based awareness campaigns, fundraisers for our partner organization, and global health- and social justice-related speakers and panels. 2016 is an exciting year for our chapter, as we complete a partnership with the Kenyan community organization the Lwala Community Alliance, and embark upon a new journey with CHOICE Humanitarian Peru. Please read on and explore our website to learn more about who we are, what we do, and what we believe!
Each summer, GlobeMed at Penn sends 2-5 interns to Peru in order to strengthen the relationship between our chapter and CHOICE Humanitarian. These students spend 3-8 weeks on the ground in order to understand the various projects they are working on, help them in their projects, and bring back to campus the needs of the community.
GROW interns are not the only ones doing amazing things over the summer. GlobeMed at Penn is filled with hard-working, ambitious members doing exciting and fun things over the summer that range from research to volunteering to policy work.
