Medical Brigades at Texas A&M is a chapter of Global Brigades, the world's largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. The TAMU chapter systematically works with more than 300 other university groups around the world to deliver and implement one of nine skill-based programs that benefit more than 130,000 Honduran and Panamanian community members annually. Global Medical Brigades develops sustainable health initiatives and provides relief where there is limited access to healthcare. Each community receives a brigade every 3 to 4 months where hundreds of patients are treated and volunteers deliver public health workshops. Electronic patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall community health trends.

Annual Chapter Contribution
Jan 01, 2017 - Dec 31, 2017

Fundraise with your Global Medical Brigades chapter on campus to meet the minimum $1,500 USD annual chapter contribution. The annual chapter contribution directly supports the Sustainable Health Fund, which enables year-round health care in partner communities carried out by our local teams. The Sustainable Health Fund is a critical component of GB’s Sustainable Transition Plan. Once a partner community has met specific health and economic development goals and brigades are no longer necessary, GB transitions projects fully to the community and offers follow-up with our local staff. The more you fundraise, the more impact we make together!
