GlobeMed is a student-run global health non-profit, part of a national network of student organizations committed to building sustainable partnerships with community-based healthcare NGOs and initiatives across the world. The WashU chapter is partnered with Uganda Development and Health Associates (UDHA), working to fully fund two projects: a Youth Resource Center focused on sexual health education and the Rural Health Empowerment Project focused on maternal and child primary care. Students in GlobeMed gain meaningful social justice education, participate in fundraising campaigns to support UDHA, and work to advocate for global health and social justice-related issues in the WashU and St. Louis communities. Students with all backgrounds and interests are welcome to apply.
