Posted by Mike Martin, Project Manager, Digital Commons on January 20th, 2012 at 10:14 am
Vanderbilt students interested in global health can put their knowledge to the test in the second annual Global Health Case Competition on February 18. Students form interdisciplinary teams to explore the topic, analyze current interventions, and propose innovative strategies for addressing the global health issue. The winning team will represent Vanderbilt University at the Emory University Global Health Case Competition on March 31.
Teams will be comprised of four to six students from three or more Vanderbilt schools. Students may register as individuals and be assigned to a team, or can assemble their own team provided that three or more Vanderbilt schools, including one graduate/professional school, are represented. There is a limit to the number of teams the competition can support, so be sure to register as soon as possible!
Each team will develop a plan over the course of a day and a half to address a global health challenge presented at the Opening Ceremony on the evening of Thursday, February 16. Teams will then have until noon on Saturday, February 18 to prepare a plan with specific recommendations to meet the challenge, and then will present their solutions to a distinguished panel of judges selected by VIGH.
