Tulane Health Policy Case Competition returns for Fall 2022

David Gladow

The Tulane Health Policy Case Competition is returning this fall, hosted by the Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

The Tulane Health Policy Case Competition gives teams of undergraduate students an opportunity to apply their talents and knowledge to put together a solution to a given health policy problem.

Students will have an opportunity to interact with school faculty in the course of constructing their solutions. Top teams will present their solutions to a panel of experts for detailed feedback.

Each member of the winning team will receive $1,000 in cash as well as a $10,000 scholarship to the Health Policy master's program.  

The registration deadline is Oct. 2.

A full outline of competition parameters is available online.

“Last year we had about 100 participants (from 15 universities) in our competition to translate the rallying cry “Defund the Police” into actionable health policy in New Orleans,” Charles Stoecker, Associate Professor said. “We hope to reach that number again.”

This year’s case asks teams of undergraduate students to apply the lens of health policy analysis to the gun violence crisis.

The costs of gun violence vary by community, but it is among the leading causes of death nationally.
