Through their involvement today, students commit to a life of leadership in global health and social justice. Relationships are the heart of GlobeMed's model of engaging students to make an impact in the health of communities around the world. Each of our 46 chapters at universities across the United States has a partner in a grassroots health organization in the developing world. Together, the chapter and partner organization work to collaborate on specific projects, organize a global health curriculum on campus, and lead trips to work with partners in communities abroad. GlobeMed at Columbia partners with Gulu Women’s Economic Development and Globalization (GWED-G) in Northern Uganda.
