2020 GlobeMed Summit

March 26, 2020March 29, 2020

Redefine: Challenging Notions Within Global Health Equity!

We are incredibly excited to host our 13th annual Summit in Evanston, IL from March 26-29, 2020.

The theme for our 2020 GlobeMed Summit is “Redefine: Challenging Notions Within Global Health Equity” and will focus conversations around reimagining traditional concepts of, assumptions about, and approaches to four areas:

  • Health

  • Wealth

  • Partnership

  • Leadership

Using GlobeMed’s signature learning model, within these topic areas our participants will intentionally reflect on the impact and meaning of challenging the status quo, engage in learning and awareness about new and stimulating ideas, discern the importance of the work and their role in it, and spark plans of action together to take back to their campuses.

What is Summit?

The GlobeMed Summit catalyzes collective learning & collaboration between ~150 students, grassroots partners, and peer organizations from around the world. This conference provides students with a critical understanding of the intersections between global health and social justice, educates about ethical practices in global engagement, and provides a space for like-minded individuals to network and form relationships grounded in values of social justice and health equity.

Who can attend Summit?

The Summit is held every Spring in the Chicagoland area. Full Summit registration is made available only to GlobeMed chapter members and alumni, which includes lodging, some meals, and access to all workshops and events throughout the weekend. Applications typically open every December for the following year.
