What began at Emory University as the Global Health Case Competition took root at UNC in spring 2010 as the inaugural Global Health Case Challenge was hosted at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. The Challenge was intended to bring campus-wide disciplines together as student teams worked over the course of a week on a specified global health dilemma. Nursing students were invited to join in the competition and participated in writing the case. Check back in January for details on next year’s competition.
