Mission Statement

GlobeMed aims to strengthen the movement for global health equity by empowering students and communities to work together to improve the health of people living in poverty around the world.

Vision Statement

We envision a world in which health — the ability to not only survive but thrive — is possible for all people, regardless of where they call home.

What is GlobeMed at Cornell?

Founded in the fall of 2010, GlobeMed at Cornell University partners with a community-based organization in Comitancillo, San Marcos, Guatemala called Asociacion Maya-Mam de Investigacion y Desarrollo (AMMID). Our chapter has about 30 active staff members and is managed by an executive board. We, the chapter members, work together with AMMID to implement long-term, sustainable initiatives to improve the health of adolescents in Comitancillo’s community.
