About the Conference
With the change of administration that happened this past year, it is no surprise that many American policies have seen some form of change. The health care landscape has been no exception, and it seems that no matter where you look someone is pointing the blame at someone else. We, at GWU GlobeMed, believe that while there is no perfect solution, we should always be getting involved in the discussion to find improved ways for people to receive care, in any political climate.
As George Washington University students, we are surrounded by the very politicians, policy makers, lobbyists, members of nonprofit organizations, and activists that initiate and carry out change in the healthcare industry- the change that impacts millions of lives.
To get students from different universities involved in the discussion, GlobeMed at GWU is hosting a conference from April 13th through April 15th, 2017. The purpose of this conference is to Initiate Change as we hope to inspire interested students to:
Be Informed. Be Involved. Be Innovative.
About the Chapter
GlobeMed at GWU is a chapter of the national organization, GlobeMed. Our specific chapter is comprised of 48 members of different backgrounds who share a passion for public health, international development, and global equity. We bring together our independent skills and interests to raise funds and awareness for our partner, Set Her Free, a non-profit organization located in Kampala, Uganda.
Set Her Free provides girls and women with the education, vocational training and rehabilitative services necessary to lead self-determined lives. The program not only provides a temporary residence, but also offers formal education, technical training, counseling, medical care, mentoring, and resettlement opportunities; services geared toward giving young women the necessary tools for a healthy, stable, and independent future.
