ASB-Ecuador

Timmy Global Health

The Timmy Global Health ASB experience is unique in that it has a learning component to complement its service component, Students chosen for this trip will be required to take a one credit-hour course to help them connect their service in the context of major issues within global health and social justice. In doing this, students can directly observe the social determinants of health, the health disparities within Ecuador, and discover how global health initiatives and Timmy Global Health help address these issues everyday. Through all this, participants will help connect people in the region with quality, sustainable healthcare while also learning along the way.

“The trip class really helped me connect all the global health concepts to what I was actively seeing in the communities. The semester we spent together also allowed us to interact with each other and develop a closer relationship.”

“Part of the uniqueness of the ASB experience is the learning component tied to the service. The Ecuador trip allowed students to engage in direct service through a traveling medical clinic while exploring the social justice issue of global health. In doing this, we observed various social inequities present and then learned how they affect global health and what Timmy Global Health, our partner organization, is doing to address such inequities.” – Tori H.
