Introducing two new programs in Ecuador in July and August 2015! These programs will provide team-based global health learning experiences where participants learn about the public health and health care infrastructure in Ecuador, including western and indigenous health practices. Offered in conjunction with Fundación Cimas del Ecuador, a nonprofit organization that provides academic programs to enable students to think critically about development and its impacts on Ecuadorian and Latin American life.

Congratulations to everyone who participated this year! The 2015 U of M Global Health Case Competition brought 14 teams together to propose a bid to the International Olympic Committee highlighting their cities' ability to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. It was a close competition and the many hours that were logged by teams were evident. It was an outstanding effort by all who were involved.

A special thanks to our 2015 University of Minnesota judging team, Andrea Hickle, Karen Brown, James Hart, Donald Rost Banik, Jeffery Peltola, and Carol Berg, and to our coaches.

Joy Hwang, a member of the Third Place team from the 2015 Global Health Case Competition, reflects on her experience and why the competition is such a great opportunity for students.
