Emory International Global Health Case Competition and Toronto Thinks (1PM-2PM, HS106):

Event Description: Hosted by the Office of Global Public Health Education & Training, this session will give students the opportunity to learn more about upcoming opportunities to participate in case competitions. Case competitions challenge participants to use their problem solving and analytical skills in a team setting, navigate a complex real world issue, and present it to a panel of experts in the area. It is an intensive but rewarding experience that provides students the opportunity to ignite their intellectual curiosity, better understand team dynamics, and network with other students and experts. During the session, the 2017 DLSPH Emory Global Health International Case Competition Team will present their case presentation (which won them 2nd place and the people’s choice award). They’ll also give feedback on the benefits of participating in the competition. The OGPHET will answer questions about the upcoming Toronto Thinks Global Health Case Competition. Students will also have the opportunity to network with their peers to form Toronto Thinks teams.
