Emory Global Health Case Competition
This competition gives students at both U.S. and international institutions the opportunity to work together to foster creative solutions that address current global health problems. A total of five Brown University students attended, creating a diverse team of students passioante for global health. Bianca Duah and Pranav Sharma are both undergraduates, Zac Tabb is attending the Alpert Medical School, Jennifer Knight is pursuing her MPH at The School of Public Health and Rachel Deraney is a PhD candidate in Biomed Engineering. All students thoroughly enjoyed their experience and recommended that Brown students apply for next year!
The Global Health Initiative is a multidisciplinary university-wide effort to reduce health inequalities among underserved populations locally and worldwide through education, research, service and development of partnerships.
Global Health in Education, Research and Service
The GHI is distinguished by an integrative, overarching approach to the fundamentally interrelated problems of health and development. One key advantage of the GHI is its ability to bring together the social, cultural, and human dimensions of global health problems and their biomedical and technological elements under a single umbrella. Building upon Brown's expertise in both population analysis and infectious disease intervention, the Initiative offers high impact education, research, and service opportunities for students and faculty, and addresses issues of capacity, infrastructure, environment, and health care delivery to reduce the burden of disease in impoverished communities.
