Business of Life Sciences Certificate Program Fall Reception


GlobeMed at IU

We don’t want to just write checks.

We believe that global health inequity is a serious problem. Health is a basic human right, yet many of the world’s poor continue to die of preventable and treatable diseases. Unfortunately, there are no easy fixes. Writing checks for one-off projects isn’t a sustainable solution. Neither is a top-down approach that ignores the central role that local communities must play in their own development.

At GlobeMed, we believe in long-term, sustainable partnership is the foundation for erasing health inequity. We believe that the members of our partner communities around the world best understand their communities’ needs and potential. By building one-on-one relationships between students and community-based organizations all around the world, we believe that through dialogue, collaboration, and mutual learning, we can make our vision a reality: a vision of a world in which health – the ability to not only survive but thrive is possible for all people, regardless of where they call home.

Become part of an organization that recognizes that students have both the ability and the responsibility to be change-makers around the world. Be part of an organization that wants to equip you with the personal and professional skills to become a leader for global health equity and social justice.

 We are currently looking for students with the following interests:

• Global Health

• International Development

• Social entrepreneurship

• Start-ups

• Journalism

• Marketing

• Graphic and web design

Pre-meds and non-pre-meds alike are welcome. 

If you're interested please come to any of our chapter meetings. We meet every Thursday from 6:30-7:30 PM in the Student Building Room 140.
