Student Organization Service Project Awards


GlobeMed received Gillings Student Service Awards in 2010 and again in 2014.

From 2010 – 2015, the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health provided support for SPH student organizations to conduct innovative service projects that benefited communities across North Carolina and around the world. Funded projects were aligned with campus-wide service programs, such as the Carolina Center for Public Service, and were competitively selected.
