TEAMS

LOCAL
Partnerships
  • Initiated a new partnership with Options for Youth to help with outreach research, and funding

  • Graduated previous partnership with ASPAT Peru, a grassroots organization comprised solely of volunteers formerly affected by TB to serve over 1,500 TB patients throughout the Lima Metropolitan area. 

  • Developed a database of resources for ASPAT Peru

  • Generated content for OFY ranging from quarterly themes to a glossary of language used by nonprofits

Local Partnerships engages with a Chicago-based grassroots organization and the chapter’s primary liaison for this local partner. 2019-2020 is an exciting year for Local Partnerships as they have just partnered with Options for Youth (OFY), a Hyde Park based organization that supports teenage mothers and male students through education and individual support. Local Partnerships is hoping to take initiative to interact directly with OFY and determine further support GlobeMed can offer in this new relationship. Local Partnerships is seeking applicants with interests in engaging with local social and health issues and leading projects for community health.Communications

Communications is at the forefront of every GlobeMed campaign, event, and deliverable. From creating marketing material for GlobeMed events to helping develop lesson plans for our global partner, the Communications team collaborates across the chapter to design and implement marketing projects.
