UC Students Developing Local GlobeMed Chapter

From GlobeMed at UC:

GlobeMed is a network of university students who partner with grassroots organizations around the world to improve the health of people living in poverty.

GlobeMed has a three part mission: Campaigns to raise money for the organization, education on campus, and three week long internship trips to work at the site.

UC's chapter of GlobeMed will be new to campus in the fall of 2011 and is partnered with Social Action for Women (SAW) in Thailand and Burma. SAW works to promote health for refugees from Burma who live as migrant workers. Programs are implemented for HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria prevention as well as health care for the migrant workers.

If you are interested in joining GlobeMed, please email or contact Stephanie Lux (Founder/President) for more information. GlobeMed is open to undergraduate students of all majors.
