GlobeMed at the Maya-Mam Association for Research and Development
Students in GlobeMed work in close collaboration with a grassroots organization in Comitancillo, Guatemala, focusing on improving the city’s water-filtration system. Other projects include workshops on women empowerment, oral hygiene, microfinance and nutrition for the underserved indigenous community there. Students learn about health issues that affect the indigenous population there as well as skills necessary to conduct these workshops in rural Guatemala.
