2010 GlobeMed Global Health Summit

Welcome! Dear friends, Welcome to the 2010 GlobeMed Global Health Summit! This year's Summit brings together over 150 students from each of GlobeMed’s 19 chapters for three days of lectures, workshops, and discussions to advance the movement for global health equity. A diverse group of more than two dozen global health leaders ranging from physicians to political activists will join us throughout the weekend to discuss issues of health and social justice, share lessons from their work, and inspire us to redouble our efforts at this crucial moment in global health. This year's Summit focuses on multiple levels of analysis and action. First, the Summit explores the moral and philosophical dimensions that guide our work as individuals and as a broader movement. Both the keynote addresses and several small group discussions explore the concepts behind this year's Summit theme: Ubuntu and Social Justice. Secondly, the Summit grounds these loftier conversations in more focused analyses of global health delivery. Throughout the day on Friday, we will explore five global health challenges through the lens of an overview, a case study, and a policy perspective. Lastly, we will be trained with the skills needed to translate this knowledge into effective action. Sessions on Saturday will focus on organizational leadership to build effective partnerships for global health. This is the fourth annual GlobeMed Global Health Summit since 40 students first gathered at Northwestern University in March of 2007 to discuss the founding framework of our organization. Since then, the growth of the Summit has been both a product and a catalyst of GlobeMed's successes. As GlobeMed has expanded to new universities across the country, the Summit has drawn increasing numbers of students every year. The relationships formed and knowledge shared at each year's Summit have enabled us to return to our campuses as more capable leaders with a stronger sense of common purpose. Make the most out of this weekend together. We are truly privileged to have the time, space, money, and health to gather for this Summit. Use this opportunity to critically consider our role as university students in this movement. Ask hard questions about what social justice looks like in practice. Challenge the status quo. At the GlobeMed National Office, we are humbled to work with such a committed and passionate community of students. We look forward to using our time this weekend to push the limits of what we are capable of achieving together as GlobeMed. In solidarity, The GlobeMed Summit Team Jennifer Lien, Peter Luckow, Zach Puller, Jill Shah, and Sid Singh

A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. On the one hand, we are called to play the Good Samaritan on life's roadside, but that will be only an initial act. . .True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. - Martin Luther King Jr.

He is a founding director of Partners In Health (PIH, 1987), an international non-profit organization that provides direct health care services and undertakes research and advocacy activities on behalf of those who are sick and living in poverty. Dr. Farmer began his lifelong commitment to Haiti in 1983 when still a student, working with villages in Haiti’s Central Plateau. Starting with a one-building clinic in the village of Cange, Partners In Health’s project in Haiti has grown to a multi-service health complex that includes a primary school, an infirmary, a surgery wing, a training program for health outreach workers, a 104-bed hospital, a women’s clinic, and a pediatric care facility. Over the past twenty years, PIH has expanded operations to ten sites throughout Haiti, as well as nine other countries around the globe.

2010 GlobeMed Global Health Summit

Thank you! We would like to thank all of our generous donors for making this year's Summit possible. In particular, we want to express our deep gratitude to Northwestern University for their wide-ranging support of GlobeMed and the GlobeMed Global Health Summit over the past several years. Thanks to the support of the Buffett Center and other partners on campus, GlobeMed has grown from a small student group to a growing national student movement for global health equity. We would especially like to thank the Abbott Fund for their incredible ongoing partnership with GlobeMed. The Abbott Fund's generous support from our early stages to today have catalyzed our efforts in ways that otherwise would not have been possible.  Thank you all so much. It is humbling to have the opportunity to work with each of you to strengthen this movement. Together we can build a more just and equitable world.

the low road What can they do to you? Whatever they want. They can set you up, they can bust you, they can break your fingers, they can burn your brain with electricity, blur you with drugs till you can’t walk, can’t remember, they can take your child, wall up your lover. They can do anything you can’t stop them from doing. How can you stop them? Alone, you can fight, you can refuse, you can take what revenge you can but they roll over you. But two people fighting back to back can cut through a mob, a snake-dancing file can break a cordon, an army can meet an army. Two people can keep each other sane, can give support, conviction,

Three people are a delegation a committee, a wedge. With four you can play bridge and start an organization. With six you can rent a whole house, eat pie for dinner with no seconds, and hold a fund raising party. A dozen make a demonstration. A hundred fill a hall. A thousand have solidarity and your own newsletter; ten thousand, power and your own paper; a hundred thousand, your own media; ten million, your own country. It goes on one at a time, it starts when you care to act, it starts when you do it again after they said no, it starts when you say We and know who you mean, and each day you mean one more.
