Interview: Matt McGregor, executive director.



At the 2012 American Giving Awards, Indianapolis-based Timmy Global Health won third place and $250,000. Timmy Global Health, founded in 1997 by Dr. Chuck Dietzen, has a dual mission statement: to provide health care to some of the most deprived communities in the world and empower the next generation of health care providers to tackle global health challenges. According to executive director Matt McGregor, the $250,000 prize money will be used to create a scholarship fund to help offset the costs of students working with global health initiatives and to help expand patient access to health care. Recently Timmy Global health has opened a clinic in the Dominican Republic, partnered with Microsoft to create electronic medical records in Ecuador and launched local service initiatives across Indiana.
