Congratulations to our Seven Globies Winners

These folks continue to make the world a better place

Globies - Celebrating Service to the Global Health Community

For 70 years, PAHO/WHO Federal Credit Union has proudly served those who work tirelessly to build a better, healthier future for the global community. Even among those who put in the extra hours and devote years to the service of others, there are individuals who stand out. That’s why we’ve introduced the Globie Awards.

What are the Globies?

We strive to reflect the values of integrity, respect, and solidarity in everything we do. The Globies exemplify that commitment, and the dedication of those throughout the global health community, by highlighting individuals who make the world a better place. We need your help to find and honor those individuals.

Our 2019 Winners

As a celebration of our 70th anniversary, we took nominations and awarded seven Globies in 2019. In addition to a Globies Award trophy with their name on it, each of winner received a $700 prize and we donated $1,000 to the charity of their choice.

It's truly an honor to celebrate the work being done by individuals such as those selected to win this year’s Globie Awards. As we help members of the global health community live better, healthier financial lives, we want to thank everyone who participated in this year’s awards and the great work being done around the world.
