AGGIES GOT HEART
The “Aggie’s Got Heart” Campaign is combined effort by the students of Texas A&M to raise awareness, ignite solidarity and take action to support inequities around the world. The campaign will run during heart awareness month/February. All proceeds will benefit the TAMU BUILD and Texas A&M VOOM Ambassador student organizations and their efforts towards addressing health disparities in disadvantaged countries.
The Texas A&M Build Program has built and donated three free-standing medical clinics to the VOOM Foundation medical program. The Clinic are utilized by the VOOM Ambassadors and VOOM Foundation medical teams to build capacity and support outreach efforts to diagnose and treat those less fortunate. During the VOOM Foundation medical mission in November 2022, two of the BUILD medical clinics were utilized during health fair activities, where over 500 patients received cost free medical examinations and over 1000 pounds of donated medicines were distributed to those in need. Two patients that received evaluations through the BUILD Clinics were diagnosed with heart disease and later referred into the VOOM open-heart surgery program and will be considered to receive open-heart surgery during the next VOOM Foundation medical mission. "WE BELIEVE" that together we can "IMPACT" more!
About Aggie BUILD
BUILD is a student led organization aimed at unifying Texas A&M’s student body. Our goal is to connect students from all organizations, all academic colleges, and all corners of Texas A&M through a physically uniting effort. We encourage students to interact and work alongside each other throughout the processes of planning, organizing, and constructing the project. Our long-term vision is to build and send out portable medical clinics around the world in honor of those who lost their lives in the collapse of the Aggie Bonfire, as it was a tradition that pursued these same Aggie Core Values.
