About GlobeMed Mission GlobeMed aims to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world.
Vision We envision a world in which health â€“ the ability to not only survive but thrive â€“ is possible for all people.
We believe every human life has equal value. This belief has drawn us together from all corners of the world. Health for all is within our grasp if we work together.
The Co-Presidents Dear Friends, This year we set out to establish GlobeMed as an organization on campus that is clearly oriented with global issues. Through biweekly meetings as well as public events, GlobeMed has developed a small but growing presence at Howard University. As Co Presidents for the 2016-2017 term, we have witnessed an unexpected, amount of growth. Despite the difficulty of erecting a new chapter, the results were well worth the work. In the past year, GlobeMed has served as an arena for students to dialogue, exchange ideas and work towards improving the current state of health. We credit our success this year to the determined leadership demonstrated by the executive board and commitment of our members. We were overjoyed about students eagerness to engage in conversations and make calls for action.
The partnership forged with other organizations has added greatly to this term. One Acre Fund, Diverge Student Council, The Life of an UJ Inc., and Medical School for International Health are just a few of the organizations we have had the pleasure of working with. In addition, we have officially been partnered with the Nancholi Youth Organisation and sent its first cohort of Grow Interns to Malawi.
We canâ€™t wait to see what this next year holds.
Sincerely, Cameron Clarke and Khadyja Sarr 2016-2017 Co-Presidents GlobeMed at Howard University
About our Chapter
GlobeMed at Howard University GlobeMed at Howard University was founded in 2016 by Christina Amutah and Cameron Clarke. The charter members include Khadyja Sarr, Admiria Cooper, Temitayo Adanlawo, Ngozi Elobuike, and Sania Solon. The organization was founded in response to a lack of campus organizations with international impact and social responsibility. Recently, GlobeMed at Howard University has been partnered with the Nancholi Youth Organization. After raising 1,500 dollars, the chapter sent their first set of interns to Malawi to participate in the GROW Trip.
since our founding in April 2016, our chapter has grown from 7 to 106 members
since our founding in April 2016, our chapter has raised $2,372.50
KEY FACT: NAYO’s 175 volunteers work in 16 villages in the Nancholi area to implement activities related to HIV/ AIDS, human rights, environmental protection, and youth activities.
[Nancholi Youth Organisation Malawi ] Founded in 2004 The Nancholi Youth Organization (NAYO) is experienced in carrying community-based programming related to youths and HIV/AIDS in the Nancholi area in Southern Malawi. NAYO takes a holistic approach to youth and community development, with programming related to HIV/AIDS, environmental protection, care for orphans and vulnerable children, home-based care, and sustainable income generating activities. GlobeMed at Howard University began the partnership in 2016 with a commitment to advancing the mission of the organization through financial and volunteer support. Blantyre City, Malawi Population: 956,900 “Nancholi is a small rural district nestled in the hills surrounding Blantyre city, the second largest city in Malawi. Nancholi is bursting with bustling markets, local schools, and church choirs singing; the rejoicing spirit of the local people is infectious. But dig below the surface and you will find the evidence of the problems challenging this community. Health care, education and gender equality are huge issues throughout Malawi as a whole, and the impact of these problems left unresolved on a local level can be devastating.” -https://nayoinmalawi.wordpress.com/about/

Community Building Through service and team-building events, community and camaraderie is fostered around global health and social justice within GlobeMed chapters, the GlobeMed network and surrounding communities.
Total number of chapter members in 2016â€“ 2017: 73 Number of community-building events: 3 The importance of community building is to strengthen the foundation of GlobeMed at its core, and once that is accomplished we can effectively render our services to the community at large. It begins with an in house initiative, as an Eboard. Once we have established a solid foundation the attention turns to creating strong lines of communication and rallying support for the mission within the Howard University. This past year, our chapter has been able to render our services to the larger D.C. community by volunteering as well as build relationships by participating in activities with one another such as yoga and ice skating.
globalhealthU globalhealthU is GlobeMedâ€™s signature year-long global health curriculum. This student-designed and driven program equips students with the critical thinking skills that will inform a life of leadership for global health.
Being gHU coordinator has unlocked conversations about subjects that arenâ€™t often brought up in everyday conversation. The exchange of experiences, ideologies,
KEY QUESTIONS WE ASKED THIS YEAR
If you could design your own health care system, what you it look like?
and stance can often be seen in a GlobeMed Howard gHU discussion. From Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and getting first hand knowledge from individuals with family
What is female genital mutilation?
members to debating heated topics such as police brutality and maternity/paternity leave, the amount of fruitful conversation gained from gHU's cannot be understated.
-Temitayo Adanlawo [globalhealthU Coordinator]
How can we #BringBackOurGirls? What are some uncommon cultural practices involving health? How long should maternity leave be?
globalhealthU highlights from the year
Female Genital Mutilation FGM, commonly known as female genital mutilation is a widely practiced cultural controversy that calls into question human rights. During the gHU, a description of FGM was provided to participants as well as the history of its use. Dialogue centered around reconciling culture with detrimental health practices
Health Care System Participants were asked to devise their own health care systems within a group and define the parameters. Students then chose which plan would be most beneficial for the country at large.
#BringBackOurGirls Bring back our girls was a circulating hashtag meant to draw attention to the exorbitant mount of missing girls in the Washington, D.C. area. The gHU involved an interactive discussion that allowed participants have solution oriented dialogue.
Event Highlights THE AUDACITY OF A BLACK WOMAN in Medicine and Health GlobeMed partnered with the College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences to host an event. Hand picked incredible black women serve as panelists who shed light on the power of being a women in medicine. They spoke about tackling the challenges of rising above race and gender inequities to become leaders in their fields.
ONE ACRE FUND Their mission was to provide farmers in rural communities in Africa with the farming resources to assist in procuring a better harvest. No longer would they need to make the decision between sending their children to school and placing food on the table. Students engaged with the represenative and asked many questions about the implications of their work.
Leading Bravely: Finding Strength in Diversity The annual GlobeMed Global Health Summit catalyzes mutual learning and collaboration between 300 students and leaders from a variety of health-related sectors. It provides delegates with the space to form relationships grounded in values of social justice and health equity.
[It is] imperative that we have a seat at that table. And if not, we’ll make one. It’ll always be love.” - Brittny Dawkins ℅ 2018 “Don’t let fear stop you. See the problem and fix the problem. Just go for it!” Question authority when things aren’t just.” Don’t be afraid to go against the majority.” - Imani Boykin ℅ 2018 To lead bravely is to challenge preconceived notions and incorporate diversity into the dialogue. - Ngozi Elobuike ℅ 2019
