GlobeMed Sponsors Haiti Benefit Concert

At 8 p.m. Feb. 19, three bands — Deadwood, Savage Henry and Heroes for Ghosts — will perform at a benefit concert for Haiti at the Journal Printing Building in downtown Kirksville.

All proceeds from the concert will be donated to Partners in Health, a non-profit organization that has been based in Haiti for the past 20 years and whose “Stand With Haiti” campaign is dedicated to earthquake victims. The cost is $8 for general admission or $5 with a student ID.

The Truman chapter of GlobeMed is sponsoring the concert. Other student organizations assisting with the concert include the Romance Language House, American Medical School Association, Association of Black Collegians, Truman in Africa, Hispanic American Leadership Organization, Environmental Campus Organization, Alpha Phi Omega, Love in Future Tense, Amnesty International and the Nursing Students Association.

Tickets for the concert are for sale on campus and will be available at the door. For more information contact Jordan Buchheit at or Timothy Farley at

GlobeMed’s mission is to educate, enable and inspire students to understand growing inequities in global health and act to make an impact in the work of partner grassroots health organizations in impoverished communities around the world. The Truman chapter of GlobeMed supports La Maison de Naissance, a birthing clinic in rural Haiti.
