About Us

OUR MISSION

As one of the earliest college chapters of Timmy Global Health, we have been promoting public health on Purdue's campus since 2004. Serving in the greater Lafayette area, Atlanta, and Quito, Ecuador, Purdue Timmy Global Health has promoted public health, served the underprivileged, and provided medical care to underserved communities.

OUR GOALS

As an organization, we strive to grow our impact on and off campus. Through our many events such as Global Health Week, we educate the students on public health locally and abroad. Through 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 health firsthand.

AROUND PURDUE

Many of our service projects impact our local community in West Lafayette and Lafayette, IN. Current opportunities include collecting donations at grocery stores, holding a benefit concert on campus, education the children at the Boys & Girls Club in conjunction with IU Health's Get Onboard Active Living program, 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 Mikaela Skaare, the Director of Community Service for more information.

Atlanta, ga

Unique to the Purdue chapter of Timmy Global Health, we send 16 students to Atlanta, GA, for a service trip 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 McKenzie Barber or Jeff Salay, the trip leaders for the 2016-17 school year.

QUITO, ECUADOR

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 chapters, this results ina continuity of care for high-risk, chronic patients. Leading up to the trip, trip leaders give lessons on Spanish, Ecuadorian culture, and 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 September. Contact this year's trip leaders, Andre Woloshuk or Shovik Bandyopadhyay for more information.
