Global Health Initiative is a group of IPFW students that seeks to address global concerns in the unequal distribution of healthcare among those living in poverty, both around the world and in our own community. We hope to educate students on global health issues and demonstrate the multidimensional aspects of these problems through presentations, and discussions that involve students, professors, and community members. We as a group hope to involve students in global health initiatives by volunteering locally and by supporting clinics fighting healthcare disparities in other parts of the world by collecting needed supplies. We also hope to provide students interested in pursuing a career in the health and human service field with the opportunity to participate in a cross-cultural experience in a medical setting. In 2012, eight Global Health Initiative students traveled to San Lorenzo, Ecuador for a medical/humanitarian trip. Dr. Jane Weaver, a board certified general surgeon and Fort Wayne native, hosted this trip at the San Lorenzo Health Clinic. While at the clinic, the students assisted in building projects and were able to shadow and assist in surgeries. The trip was once again made possible in the spring of 2013 for ten students. To date, ten new students will be traveling to San Lorenzo, Ecuador in the spring of 2014.LAMB organization
