About Us

OUR MISSION

As one of the earliest college chapters of Timmy Global Health, we have been promoting Timmy's mission of expanding access to healthcare and empowering students on Purdue's campus to tackle global health challenges since 2004. Serving in the greater Lafayette area, Atlanta, Georgia, and Quito, Ecuador, Purdue Timmy Global Health has advocated for global health disparities, served in underprivileged communities, and provided medical care to those without access to quality care.

OUR GOALS

As an organization, we strive to grow our impact on and off campus. Through our many advocacy events, such as Mental Health Awareness Week and Global Health Week, we educate the students on public health locally and abroad. By joining committees, students can become more involved in the planning of many of our events.

We also look to grow our service opportunities in the Greater Lafayette area and continue the Domestic Service Trip and the Ecuador Medical Brigade as a way to experience the impact of public and global health firsthand.

AROUND PURDUE

Many of our service projects impact our local community in West Lafayette and Lafayette, IN. Current opportunities include educating the children at the Boys & Girls Club in conjunction with IU Health's Get Onboard Active Living program, collecting donations outside of Wal-Mart for our Ecuador Medical Brigade, helping out at Food Finders Food Bank, volunteering in the soup kitchen at the Lafayette Urban Ministry or for their other events throughout the year, participating in our pilot program- the Food Recovery Network, which allows us to donate unused food from Purdue's dining courts to facilities around the community, and even more! These events give students an intimate view of the importance public health in their own community and raise awareness on our organization's goals and achievements. Contact Will Austin, the Director of Community Service for more information.

Atlanta, ga

Unique to the Purdue chapter of Timmy Global Health, our Domestic Service trip sends 16 students to Atlanta, GA over spring break. Working in conjunction with DOOR Atlanta, a local non-profit organization, we serve in soup kitchens, food pantries, after school programs, and learn about those struggling with homelessness. Starting in Spring of 2016, this trip has also had the opportunity to visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and discuss issues about public health with experts at the CDC. More information will be released at general meetings and applications will open early October. Contact Mara Fattah or Annie Keimig, the trip leaders for the 2017-2018 school year.

QUITO, ECUADOR

On our flagship Spring Break trip, 16 students travel with medical professionals to underserved communities in Quito, Ecuador. This medical brigade is organized with Timmy Global Health Headquarters, as we return to the same communities each year. Combined with medical brigades from other college and high school chapters, this results in a continuity of care for high-risk, chronic patients, as a Timmy clinic is set up in those same communities every couple of months by each chapter. Leading up to the trip, trip leaders give lessons on Spanish, Ecuadorian culture, and host mock-clinics to prepare each trip goer for this amazing experience. As with the service trip to Atlanta, GA, more information will be released at general meetings and applications will open in October. Contact this year's trip leaders, Henry Ludwig or Leah Biasi for more information.
