A team of five Dartmouth undergraduate and graduate students created a hypothetical plan to efficiently allocate resources for 800,000 refugees in East Africa as part of Emory University’s Global Health Case Competition, which concluded March 19. The students — Vaidehi Mujumdar ’13, Saryah Azmat ’11, Cameron Nutt ’11, Allison Arensman Tu’11 and Maija Cheung DMS’13 — won an honorable mention prize and $1,000 for their proposal.

The competition allowed teams of four to six students to engage in “real-life case scenarios” by proposing strategic recommendations regarding issues ranging from health care to cultural understanding and international law, according to the competition’s website.

The competition attracted over 120 students from 13 universities. Two teams from Emory earned first and second prize, while Dartmouth and the University of California, San Francisco earned honorable mentions.
