An Exclusive Look—Made Inclusive—into the Hearts and Minds at the Global Headquarters

Straight Outta GlobeMed at USC

Out of more than 800 organizations at the USC Involvement Fair Fall 2015, I decided I had to join GlobeMed. Maybe it was because of the friendly faces at the booth or maybe it was just the right combination of the buzzwords “social justice,” “human rights,” and “global health.” It ended up being one of the best decisions I made […]
