Friends of GlobeMed at UChicago:! ! This first year of GlobeMed at UChicago has been an extraordinary experience. When we first met, we were just 12 college students with a lot of ideas. Now, after a year of fundraising, organizing, and planning, we have established ourselves as one of the major student organizations on campus.! ! We raised a significant amount of money for our partner and managed to send our very first GROW trip down to Peru to solidify our projects with them. Looking back now, I can say that though there were many hurdles and obstacles that we had to overcome, we have all grown and learned. Not all of our events were always successful during this first year and sometimes it seems to me that we have had just as many setbacks as successes. However, looking back, these trials unified us and helped us work together and to grow. By the end of the year, we were effectively communicating as a team, organizing greatly successful events, and raising a lot of money for our partner ASPAT.! ! Now, as a new school year approaches, I am very confident that we will be able to move forward and achieve even higher goals than we had last year. No matter what happens, I know for sure that this upcoming year will be very fun!! ! With hope and gratitude,! Elizabeth Gaston and Charles Wang! 2010-2011 Co-Presidents!

ABOUT US

GlobeMed at University of Chicago  The University of Chicago GlobeMed Chapter was founded in 2010 by college 3rd year Elizabeth Gaston. During the founding of the chapter, our relationship with partner ASPAT in Peru was formed and our chapter began to set goals for working with our partner. Starting with just 12 e-board members, the chapter grew to over 30 members throughout its first year, carrying out a successful first year of fundraising and raising over $5,000 to help our partner. With projects like selling sunglasses to global themed performance events, the University of Chicago slowly developed its presence on campus and became established. During the summer of 2011, our GROW trip team participated in their first GROW trip ever and visited our partner ASPAT in Peru to help work out and determine the details of our project with them. With a tremendously successful first year behind us, we look forward to continuing our success during the 2011-2012 school year!!

since our founding in september 2010 Â , our chapter has grown from to members.

[ASPAT PERU] [WORKS IN CALLAO, PERU] POPULATION: 8 million

KEY FACT: 5% of all new TB cases in Peru are drug-resistant strains.! KEY FACT: Callao is extremely dense with over 15,000 people per square mile.!

Callao is a large city and the main port for all of Peru. It is directly next to the capital city, Lima and is both are often combined into one large metropolitan area. Due at least in part to poverty and civil war, Peru had the highest prevalence of tuberculosis in Latin America at the end of the 1980s. At that time, only one fifth of the country’s health clinics provided treatment for TB, only 50% of people with TB got treatment and 50% of those patients defaulted and failed to complete treatment.! !

[About ASPAT PERU]

Asociación de Personas Afectadas por Tuberculosis del Peru (ASPAT PERU) was created by former Tuberculosis patients in the Callao area. As first hand witnesses to the tuberculosis problems facing Peru and united by their common experience through it, these survivors formed ASPAT, a non profit organization dedicated to combating tuberculosis and the social underpinnings of the tuberculosis problem.!

WORLD DAY OF SOCIAL JUSTICE

What does everyone in the world deserve?

GLOBEMED AT UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO joined 31 other GlobeMed chapters across the nation in a network-wide commemoration of the 3rd Annual World Day of Social Justice on February 20, 2011, by asking students, professors, and community members on campus an open-ended, thought provoking question relating to social justice. ! ! OUR QUESTION: What does everyone in the world deserve?! ! BEHIND THE SCENES: Through our chapter's GlobalHealthU explorations, we came across the question of cultural understanding and competency. After learning about the extremely disparate health conditions across the many countries of the world, we began to realize that what we take for granted in the United States is often unimaginable in other parts of the world. This was the driving force behind our question.! ! ! ! !

WE ASKED OVER 58 PEOPLE AT UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO.

HERE’S HOW THEY RESPONDED >>

2011 GLOBAL HEALTH SUMMIT

2011 DELEGATES: Krissy Brant, Liz Gaston, Alec Gazda, Ethel Yang, Ryota Sekine!

"Before the summit, GlobeMed was just an extracirricular activity. Now, I proudly call it a deep passion of mine. The collective enthusiasm at the summit was intoxicating and the strength of each person's commitment to the GlobeMed cause was inspiring." !

-- Alec Gazda, c/o 2013!

April 7 – 10 in Evanston, IL! Featuring Honorary Keynote!

DR. JOIA MUKHERJEE! Chief Medical Officer, ! Partners in Health!


As a new chapter, our first year was very successful. Based on what we learned our first year, we came up with a set of goals to accomplish. Our first goal is to raise even more money than we managed to raise this year: $5601.29. However, raising this amount of money requires a great deal more organization and innovation. In light of this, another one of our goals for next year is to obtain corporate sponsorships to support our more ambitious fund raising goal. With corporate sponsorships, it becomes possible to also invest ourselves in larger events and thus overall improve the size and quality of our events. Through a concerted effort directed at a few possible sources of funding, we hope to increase our base funding so as to be able to increase the size and quality of our events for next year.!
