Organization Name:  Africans in Medicine (AIM)
Organization Overview:  Africans in Medicine (AIM) is a national organization that unites African medical professionals in an effort to confront medical, cultural, and societal complexities that affect the health and well-being of Africans and Africans in the Diaspora. The Wayne State University Chapter of AIM, which was founded in 2008, is a culturally empowered network of medical students who not only promote the mission of the national organization, but also seek to increase student awareness about these issues. AIM boasts of having a diverse student member body and welcomes students from all backgrounds to join. Africans in Medicine (A.I.M.) is a non-profit organization started in 2005 by young African medical students with a mission of exerting a positive impact on the African communities both in the United States and Africa. Four years later, a Michigan Chapter was officially started by Ebere Azumah (Class of 2010) and Ukamaka Atueyi (Class of 2009). Uka and Ebere recognized the importance of establishing an organization ran and operated by African students for Africans. Their goal was to address the problems Africans have in Africa, the United States and the Caribbean. Additionally, they wanted to dispel the misconceptions people have about Africans and their lifestyle. Although there are many great medical organizations, AIM is unique and simple. Our goal is to use our medical knowledge, expertise and connections to address the problems that plague the African communities around the world. We have succeeded thus far by hosting annual free health fairs in Detroit, Michigan and in Haiti. We have organized seminars that address the barriers in health that Africans in the United States face. We have also hosted forums, tackling who we are as immigrants in the United States: how do we assimilate? Impacting Africa might seem a lofty goal, but as Mother Teresa eloquently said, “If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” We might not solve all the problems in Africa but we will try to make a difference. We, the present and past executive board members, feel that we are making a difference! As you browse our webpage, we hope to motivate you to make a difference in your community; recognize that this group was started by ordinary people like yourself. Please feel free to join our group if you share a similar vision. You can also support us by providing us with ideas or through your generous financial donations. As always: AIM HIGHER FOR A HEALTHIER AFRICA!
