Advocacy

Why Advocate through Timmy?

Advocacy is a key component of the mission of Timmy Global Health at IUPUI. Advocacy efforts help enhance the dialogue about global health challenges both locally and internationally. We seek to make our members as well as the greater IUPUI campus community aware about global health issues. We want our members to act as global health advocates for others and combat global health disparities both at home and abroad. 

The Big Impact of a Timmy Student

Advocacy Involvement

We are able to bring in a variety of speakers with global health experiences to our monthly general member meetings because of our proximity to the city of Indianapolis as well as the international headquarters of Timmy Global Health. Many of our speakers are connected to Timmy Global Health headquarters and are able to inform our members about the efforts of Timmy Global Health in reducing health inequity. For instance, Dr. Chuck Dietzen, the founder of Timmy Global Health, regularly makes appearances at our meetings and events.

Our Director of Advocacy for the 2016-2017 academic year is Valerie Gambetta. She can be reached via email at vgambett@indiana.edu regarding Timmy Global Health at IUPUI advocacy efforts.
