We have created a Global Health Impact Map to broadly communicate the Academic Health Center's efforts in global health as well as to facilitate researchers and learners in connecting with each other for collaboration. We are currently in the process of populating the map and database with AHC faculty led research, education/training, clinical care, and community-based activities.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the 2016 U of M Global Health Case Competition! Fourteen teams spent five days immersed in the Syrian refugee crisis, developing proposals for sustainable interventions. On January 30th, they made their presentations to an expert panel of judges that represented an agency of the UNHCR seeking fresh perspectives to cope with the large and growing number of refugees in the countries surrounding Syria. This case was challenging and immense in its scope. We applaud the teams’ outstanding effort.
