Improving global health through competition
The Academic Health Center's Health Talk, explores the role of the Global Health Case Competition learning.
The competition explores complex real-world global health challenges, such as refugee crises, sanitation, violence, sustainable development and infectious disease outbreaks, which are increasingly common in a world with more people, changing climates and drug-resistant viruses. Teams include students from all areas of study, including public health, nursing, veterinary science, environmental science, medicine, business, and beyond.
It’s the exact type of inter-professional experience that coaches say will prepare students for real-life global health projects.
