With the Center for Global Health and Graduate School of Public Health, GSC will host Pitt's first Global Health Case Competition. This competition simulates professional practice in developing strategies to address a hypothetical global health scenario. Interdisciplinary teams of graduate and undergraduate students will develop presentations that address the scenario in a holistic way. Each team will present its strategy to a panel of experts, with the top team receiving support to participate in the 2021 Emory University International Case Competition.

Students can register as individuals or as part of a team. Each team must included graduate and undergraduate students from multiple disciplinary backgrounds. Further information can be found on our website. Questions? Reach out to Elaine.
