Bi-Weekly Roundup: March 9, 2012

Inside our Chapter

  • Sai Khisty (ghU Coordinator) and Becky Hong (Internal Co-President) recently hosted a breakout session at the Rutgers Bioethics Symposium on March 1st, 2012. Titled When Beliefs and Biology Clash, both explored the fine line healthcare providers face when approaching health care practices alongside cultures, religions, and beliefs. Inspired by the GlobeMed Winter Book Club pick, “The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down” by Anne Fadiman, the session encouraged a great debate amongst the students.

  • Looking ahead, our chapter has a number of upcoming campaigns set for this spring semester, including a possible basketball event and an awareness campaign for Rutgers Day! If you're in the New Brunswick/Piscataway area, be sure to check out the program, which is open to the public. And stop by the GlobeMed stand!

Within the Network
  • On February 20, 2012, GlobeMed, like so many others across the world, celebrated World Day of Social Justice. This year, the network started the first ever GlobeMed Teach-Ins, where students across the 46 chapters asked professors to dedicate 5 minutes of their time to discuss the connections between their field of expertise and social justice. Check out what they had to say at the GlobeMed WDSJ Tumblr Page.
