Current Programs/Activities

Healthy Grenada

Currently our Standing Committee on Public Health (SCOPH) is working with the Athletic Development Group to provide an avenue for after school physical activity and nutritional education for primary school students in Grenada.  This is an amazing program that makes such a big impact on the lives of the children.  We are looking for partners to help us provide these children with fresh fruit and water during each of these events in order to promote a healthy lifestyle.

3R's: Rights, Respect, Responsibilities

The 3R's Program is working with the Grenada Planned Parenthood Association towards providing comprehensive sexual education in Grenadian secondary schools.  This is a landmark pilot program that has been endorsed by the Minister of Youth and the HIV/AIDS Response Coordinator at the Ministry of Education, which will empower young adolescents with the right knowledge to help them make healthy decisions.

 

Professional & Research Exchanges

This is a core aspect of IFMSA-Grenada, where we hold research and clinical exchanges for foreign IFMSA medical students to come to Grenada and work in the Grenadian health care system while experiencing this beautiful island.  In addition, we send many of our own IFMSA members to other countries to do the same.

 

International IFMSA Conventions

The international IFMSA Conventions occur twice a year and are amazing opportunities for IFMSA members to gather from IFMSA Chapters all over the world! This is an unparalleled experience that helps medical students collaborate and strategize on how to solve many health-related issues, and enhances cultural competence of medical students from other cultures.
