From my first Timmy Global Health mass meeting, I quickly learned that this was an organization I wanted to devote my time and energy to during my collegiate career. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the organization, Timmy Global Health is a non-profit based in Indianapolis dedicated to expanding access to healthcare for people around the world. When I joined Timmy, I did not realize how much I would change as a person. Thanks to Timmy, I have not only improved my overall understanding of global health but have also become a more confident leader. Timmy has empowered me to advocate for the removal of health inequalities, both locally as well as abroad. As one of the trip leaders, I have had the great pleasure in helping prepare our trip-goers for the medical brigade this year. If you would like to learn more about the trip, please check out our website at: http://iutghmedicalbrigade.weebly.com/
All in all, Timmy Global Health works very hard throughout the year to procure medicine as well as raise money for our partner orgnanization, Pop Wuj, in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. In addition to this, we have scores of students volunteering in the local community. This year, our student chapter has set a lofty goal of $25,000 dollars to raise for our partner clinic. Please consider helping us reach this goal!!
