Service is a primary focus of Timmy Global Health at IUPUI. We are involved in both local and international service initiatives that provide our volunteers with opportunities to share their skills and talents through engagement with their community.
While our international medical clinics are often the most visible part of Timmy’s work, true “Timmy service” is not exclusively focused on international service. During the rest of the year, Timmy students work to eliminate health disparities here at home by supporting local organizations, providing access to healthcare to the underserved, and striving to ensure that everyone has the healthcare they need.
Ongoing local service opportunities include providing registration support for the Indiana University Student Outreach Clinic (IU-SOC), teaching kids about healthy living through Get Onboard Active Living (G.O.A.L.), and determining food access needs in the Indianapolis community through IU Health's Food Access Intiative. One-time service opportunites are also available to help engage our membership for students unable to commit to a semester-long service experience.
