University of Virginia 2012 Global Case Conference Team
University of Virginia students representing multiple disciplines
and schools participated in the 2012 Global Health Case Study
Competition held at Emory University on March 31.
The Global Health Case Competition is a unique opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students from multiple schools and disciplines to promote awareness of and develop innovative solutions for current, critical global health issues. The global health case competition focuses on a global health-related case that requires an interdisciplinary approach to formulate recommendations regarding the case that may involve issues such as health care policy, public health implementation and planning, business partnership/investment, medical research, logistics management, faith/cultural understanding, and international law.
Our team was led by faculty mentor and Director of International Initiatives in the School of Nursing, Marianne Baernholdt, as well as Rebecca Dillingham, MD/MPH, Co-Director for the UVa Center for Global Health, the UVa team of six graduate and undergraduate students including Pranay Sinha, School of Medicine; Joseph Eldredge, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; Christopher Rannefors, McIntire School of Commerce; Amanda Below, Global Development Studies and Anthropology; Terra G.
