Interdisciplinary Student Case Competition

Undergraduate and graduate students of ALL MAJORS are invited to sign up for the second annual Interdisciplinary Student Case Competition, which will award cash prizes to teams that create the best video about a major health issue on Long Island. The contest is spearheaded by the Master of Public Health program.

Participants will work in interdisciplinary teams of up to 5 students to create a 3-minute video addressing a topic such as chronic disease, healthy environment, healthy mothers and children, infectious disease, mental health and substance abuse, or unintentional injuries – all of which have been identified by the state Department of Health as priorities for improving the health of New Yorkers.  The top three teams will win cash prizes, and their videos will be featured on the Nassau County Department of Health website.

The deadline for applications is Friday Dec. 19, 2014 (don’t worry – the application is short), and those accepted will be notified by Jan. 26, 2015.  A faculty committee will construct each team, and students will work on their videos during the spring semester.  Judging will be done in April during National Public Health Week.
