Regional summits and gatherings are hosted year-round to encourage constant conversation about global health disparities and help students form relationships with similar-minded students in the vicinity. This past Saturday (Feb. 2), Northeastern hosted a SnowTop, a smaller conference designed to attract students from GlobeMed chapters around Boston. The conference, made up of student panels and discussions, encourages students local to Boston to form relationships with one another as advocates for global health equity.
GlobeMed has championed the work and ability of students to become active agents of change since its formation six years ago. The majority of alumni of the organization have gone on to incorporate global health into their careers in some way, with many volunteering and working overseas. Most importantly, however, GlobeMed celebrates the contribution and importance of every student from every background. No matter your choice of study, GlobeMed welcomes students with open arms and helps English and chemistry majors alike realize the huge role they can play in the global health field. As its visibility on campus is increasing rapidly, GlobeMed is still on the prowl for students at all passionate about global health. Get involved, attend an event, sit in on a meeting, feel the love.
