ABOUT US

GLOBEMED

GlobeMed is a non-profit organization that partners university students with grassroots organizations around the world to address the issues surrounding global health inequity and improve the lives of people living in poverty.

Since GlobeMed was founded in 2006, it has been responsible for the creation of 50 chapters in universities across the United States, which have partnered with local organizations on four continents: North America, South America, Asia, and Africa.  Students educate their campus community, organize major fundraising events, and work together with community leaders to collaborate on projects to alleviate poverty.

GLOBEMED at UCHICAGO

GlobeMed at UChicago partners with the Asociación de Personas Afectadas por Tuberculosis (ASPAT), a  community-based organization in Callao, Peru, that seeks to educate at-risk Peruvians and control the spread of multi-and extremely-drug resistant forms of TB.

Throughout the year, we:

  • Host educational events on campus
  • Raise funds for our projects with ASPAT-Peru
  • Work on-site in Peru for one month each summer
