Expanding Access to Quality Healthcare
Timmy Global Health is an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that expands access to healthcare and empowers students and volunteers to tackle today’s most pressing global health challenges. We believe all people, regardless of who they are, what resources they have, and where they live, should have access to quality healthcare. Timmy strives to make this vision a reality by strengthening the capacity of local health systems through short-term medical service programs and long-term health solutions.
What started as a humble, grassroots effort now directly supports 10 community based project sites in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Nigeria.
Our medical volunteers are crucial to our mission. They serve on our medical teams, help strengthen our partners, and increase local capacity by working alongside native healthcare providers. These physicians, nurses, and pharmacists also empower our student volunteers by engaging in important conversations about global health and careers in medicine.
Timmy students are the next generation of global leaders. They hope to become doctors, nurses, and public health advocates. They work year-round to combat health disparities at home and abroad by serving on our medical teams, raising support for our partner organizations, and engaging their local communities in the movement for health equity.
We would not be able to sustain our programs without the generous support of our volunteers. Whether it’s helping sort medicines in our Indianapolis dispensary, participating in fundraising and community outreach events, supporting other local health organizations, or serving on a medical team, there are a wide variety of ways to get involved.
