Opportunity Knocking! – Global Health Competition

Posted: January 22, 2019 in Uncategorized

I received this email over the weekend. The opportunity to work in collaboration with students from the U’s medical school may interest you. Clink on the image to enlarge the flyer.


My name is Alyssa, and I’m a second-year medical student at the University of Utah School of Medicine and one of the co-directors of the second annual Global Case Competition. This an interdisciplinary event held on the UUSOM campus every year with the aim of bringing students from all disciplines from upper and lower campus together for three days to come up with a creative and unique solution to a global problem.

We are specifically seeking out students from disciplines that may feel as if they don’t have a role to play in such a competition, because those students tend to propose unique and imaginative solutions to these global problems as they are working from a framework separate from many students that choose to participate.

We would appreciate it if you would be willing to disseminate the attached flyer throughout your lectures and respective college to better recruit students from these much-needed disciplines.

The Global Case Competition will be held from Thursday, January 24th – Saturday, January 26th and will be an excellent opportunity for students to come together, meet students from outside of their discipline, work collaboratively on a complex and multi-faceted problem, and also have the chance to win some fantastic prizes.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at alyssa.brown@hsc.utah.edu.

I look forward to hearing from you soon, and thank you for your assistance in reaching out to as many diverse and creative students as possible.
