Penn Timmy Global
Penn Timmy Global Health (PTGH) is Penn’s chapter of Timmy Global Health, an international nonprofit devoted to expanding access to quality healthcare. PTGH partners with local service organizations and holds advocacy events on campus. Past events include four annual week-long Global Health Symposia, three annual Women’s Health Awareness Weeks, Public Health in Philadelphia speaker event with a CDC epidemiologist, and a Sleep Deprivation at Penn event with SHS. PTGH helps organize and sends students on a medical brigade to a partner clinic, 7 Elements, in the Dominican Republic while focusing on developing sustainable service rather than voluntourism. Furthermore, PTGH fundraises money that goes directly to 7 Elements clinic.
