Through GlobeMed, Northwestern students are changing lives around the world

From Big Ten Network:

One school partners with one community to affect real, lasting change. 

That is the mission of GlobeMed, an organization founded at Northwestern University that empowers students from a variety of disciplines to pull together their knowledge and strengths to improve health equity around the world.

"From urban Detroit to rural Rwanda, we're doing things like renovating health clinics, launching nutrition programs and improving access to clean water,” says Victor Roy, a student at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine and one of the founders of GlobeMed.
