Medical Brigade to Ecuador - Timmy Global Health

Timmy Global Health is a nonprofit organization that works to expand access to healthcare and empowers students and volunteers to attack today’s global health challenges head-on by raising support for partner organizations abroad and serving on medical service trips. Through short-term medical service programs and long-term health solutions, Timmy strives to give quality healthcare to all people. Medical professionals serving on Timmy medical teams work alongside native healthcare providers to increase local capacity and provide medicines, preventative care, and health education to hard-to-reach communities. Timmy chapters advocate by educating themselves and their campus communities on global health disparities affecting people down the block and around the world.

Indiana State Timmy Global Health travels to Ecuador to serve the community of Guangaje. Each year we take 20-25 undergraduate students to serve as the backbone of clinics in the rural community. We also travel with skilled medical professionals who will provide medical care in these clinics. Timmy has been part of Indiana State for ten years and gone on eight brigades.


Mikal Lange: President

I am a junior studying chemistry with a minor in public health at Indiana State University. I have been involved in Timmy Global Health since the beginning of my sophomore year, and since attending my first meeting I have been hooked on its mission of providing healthcare to those who are less fortunate. To me, Timmy means service above self. Since joining this spectacular club I have learned the value of sacrifice and altruism in the name of a worthy cause.

Alishba Rizwan: VP of Finance

My name is Alishba and I am a junior psychology major on the pre-med track. Timmy Global Health represents a unifying beacon of hope for so many people, including myself, especially as it helped through the trying time of COVID. This meaning of Timmy has been fortified over my time in the club. Through this trying time, the Timmy Club was determined to continue our mission of serving underserved communities of Ecuador, and we were successfully able to do just that! Our perseverance and persistence to continue being there for one another overcame such harsh adversities and we were able to travel to Ecuador as soon as 2021. Our perseverance exhibits Timmy’s determination, compassion, and selflessness, which are all characteristics Timmy encompasses as an organization and instills in its members.

Adrianne Rusch: VP of Finance

Hi! My name is Adrianne Rusch. I am a sophomore Chemistry and Pre-Med major from Vincennes, Indiana. To me, Timmy Global Health means helping those in need in my community and globally. Timmy is continually trying to make the world a better place, and while doing so, they open the eyes of their members to health disparities and other inequalities that cannot be seen in our daily lives. Timmy further impacts their members by making them better people. I went on a medical service trip to Ecuador with Timmy last year, and the experience made be a better person and solidified my goal of becoming a physician one day. 

Luke Hargrave: VP of Fundraising

My name is Luke Hargrave, I am a Junior Chemistry major with a Spanish Language Studies minor. To me, Timmy means caring for others as you wish others would care for you. I love how involved Timmy is in our community and how involved we are in helping serve the underprivileged people that live in the mountains in Ecuador. Going on this trip last year, I could see how much Ecuadorians were impacted by us being there. People travelled miles on foot just to be seen by a healthcare provider and receive medication as simple as ibuprofen, which is something that we could all just go to a store and purchase. I enjoy being involved, and on the Executive board, for such a selfless club like Timmy. Personally, I love helping others, which was the main draw for me to attend Timmy in the first place. Timmy holds a special place in my heart, and as I aspire to be a physician, I hope that one day I may come back as an alumnus and serve on a Timmy trip as a doctor.

Allison White: VP of Fundraising

My name is Allison White, and I am a junior Biology/ Pre-Med major with a Chemistry minor. I am one of the Vice Presidents of Fundraising for Timmy Global Health and this is my second year being a part of the exec board and my third year of being involved in Timmy. I am very passionate about Timmy and the work that is put in to help through our chapter here to help the people of Guangaje, Ecuador. To me, Timmy is an opportunity to help people who are less fortunate than us, not just those in another country but those around our hometowns as well. Timmy is also an opportunity to educate others about health disparities and give them the opportunity to help others and experience the joy you get from helping and being able to spend time with those who are not as fortunate as us. 

Peyton Sisil: VP of Advocacy

Hello, I'm Peyton Sisil! I'm a sophomore chemistry major from Sullivan, Indiana. I have always been passionate about medicine, but it wasn't until I started college that I realized just how many opportunities came with the profession. As a freshman, I was able to participate in a Timmy brigade and help bring medical resources to underserved communities in Ecuador. On this trip, I realized the connections we share with cultures that are vastly different than our own. Each of the patients we saw in the clinics came with a warm smile and a grateful heart, and I feel that this helped me learn to find joy in the small things because even they can make a difference when looking at the bigger picture.

Ramsis Girgis: Secretary

My name is Ramsis Girgis, and I am a sophomore chemistry major with a massage therapy minor. To me, Timmy is an opportunity to have an impact on the lives of people who truly need it. As an undergrad, there aren't many opportunities like Timmy that are accessible to me, and it's because of this organization that I get the chance to affect someone else's standards of living for the better.

Nick Doll: VP of Community Service

My name is Nick Doll, and I am a freshman biology major at Indiana State. Timmy Global Health is a way for me to expand beyond my own city in terms of community service. I have spent years volunteering in Terre Haute, Indiana. However, I haven't spent much time doing community service anywhere else. Timmy gives me the chance to be able to help out communities outside of the United States.

Elizabeth Marcolini: VP of Community Service

Hi! My name is Elizabeth Marcolini, and I am a sophomore chemistry major at ISU. Timmy Global Health is a family to me. Being able to make a small difference in individuals' lives is extremely important to me. I love being able to take part in community service opportunities for the homeless, healthcare workers, nursing homes, and those who are less fortunate than myself. Timmy shares the same passions and goals, and allows me to push myself to be a better person and help others.
