Exhibit Highlights GlobeMed Projects Around the World

GlobeMed is working with Pickler Memorial Library throughout the month of November to educate the Truman community on what the organization does abroad.

A photo exhibit featuring GlobeMed projects is currently on display in the Library Gallery Room. “Through My Eyes: Global Health Oppression in the Hispaniola Island,” features powerful and beautiful photos blown up to poster size, along with cases containing information about the areas in which GlobeMed works.

Materials illustrate the mothers in Haiti directly affected by the Truman GlobeMed chapter’s partnership with Maison de Naissance, as well as the sugarcane communities affected by the group’s health education projects in the Dominican Republic.

In 2008, Truman GlobeMed students traveled to the Dominican Republic on two separate occasions to teach maternal health education among sugarcane field workers.
