BENEFITING: TIMMY GLOBAL HEALTH
The Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) chapter of Timmy Global Health fulfills the mission of Timmy Global Health through advocacy, fundraising, and service efforts to expand access to health care worldwide and to empower our student members to play a role in tackling global health challenges. The proceeds from CrowdRise will support our community partner in the Santo Domingo, Ecuador by providing healthcare services to underserved communities.
Below describes how the IUPUI chapter actively fulfills Timmy Global Health's mission through advocacy, fundraising, and service:
International Service: Our student members assist medical professionals in providing access to healthcare resources on an annual medical service trip over spring break. We fundraise for our partner site through the Timmy Glow Dance in the fall semester and A Date with Timmy: Auction & Dinner in the spring semester. The proceeds from CrowdRise will also go toward supporting our community partner in Santo Domingo, Ecuador.
Local Service: IUPUI Timmy members are also very active in the local Indianapolis community in decreasing global health disparities through ongoing service involvement at the Indiana University-Student Outreach Clinic (IU-SOC) by providing registration services and the Get Onboard Active Living (G.O.A.L) Program by informing Indiana Public Schools (IPS) students about healthy lifestyle choices.
Global Health Advocacy: Our chapter also brings in global health speakers from the Indianapolis area, including Timmy Global Health headquarters, to inform our student members about global health-related issues.
