Notre Dame’s winning Global Health Case Competition team, which includes two master of global affairs students and two Notre Dame undergraduate students, will participate in Emory University’s international Global Health Case Competition on March 14, 2020 against approximately 30 teams from other universities.
Six teams competed in the University of Notre Dame’s 2020 Global Health Case Competition. Hosted by the Eck Institute for Global Health, the competition challenged graduate and undergraduate students to develop a plan for delivering vaccinations for measles and Ebola via drones in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Each team presented to a panel of global health experts and were then evaluated based on their plan.
“Each of the six student teams showed a remarkable level of talent, strategic thinking, and enthusiasm as they tackled the sort of global health challenge which professionals deal with every day,” said Bernard Nahlen, director of the Eck Institute for Global Health and professor of biological sciences. “Their ability to quickly come together to propose a path forward to address a range of technical, political, and financial issues in a complex operating environment was truly impressive.”
