CGHSR wishes to express our concern around President Trump's January 29 executive order suspending entry of all refugees as well as most foreign nationals of 7 majority-Muslim countries into the United States. We stand with colleagues and friends at the University of Minnesota and around the world in our concern for impact on global health, as well as detrimental implications for academia, research, education, and innovation.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the 2017 U of M Global Health Case Competition! Thirteen teams spent the week immersed in the global topic of sex trafficking, seeking local solutions for the city of Atlanta. Team 4 emerged the winner and will advance to compete in the Emory International Global Health Case Competition at the end of March.
And they're off! Thirteen teams of 4-6 students, from across the AHC and the rest of the university, are spending this week diligently researching, writing, analyzing, and critically considering solutions to this year's case for the Global Health Case Competition.
