Global Health Case Competition

Registration Now Open! The UVa Global Health Case Competition brings together students from schools across the university to develop real world solutions to challenging global health issues. Durable problems require the perspective and strategies inherent in multiple disciplines. Interdisciplinary teams are assigned the case and have one week to deliberate, strategize, and innovate on a given global health issue. Check out last year's competition HERE.
