GlobeMed is a network of university students which partner with grassroots organizations around the world to improve the health of the impoverished. Through their involvement today, students commit to a life of leadership in global health and social justice.
The fourth annual GlobeMed Global Health Summit will bring together hundreds of students from GlobeMed chapters across the country for four days of lectures, workshops, and discussions with leading professionals in the field of global health, including world-renowned physician-anthropologist Dr. Paul Farmer. Through the theme of this year’s Summit, Ubuntu & Social Justice: Building global partnerships for a more equitable world, we will explore how connecting communities and people through partnerships secures the physical, mental and social well-being of individuals around the world and strengthens our vision for a socially just world. The Summit will build upon the lessons learned and knowledge gained from the Summits of the past three years, which have brought together over 400 students from 17 universities and global health leaders such as Stephen Lewis, Nils Daulaire, and Joia Mukherjee.
The 2010 GlobeMed Global Health Summit will take place from March 4-7 at Nortwestern University.
Dr. Farmer is the Maude and Lillian Presley Professor of Social Medicine and Chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School; Chief of the Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital; United Nations Deputy Special Envoy for Haiti; and a co-founder of Partners In Health.
