2015 Results

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, Tricia Todd, James Hart, Donald Rost Banik, Jeffery Peltola, and Carol Berg, and to our coaches.
