A team of Dartmouth students presented its proposed solution to a hypothetical global health problem in East Africa to an audience of faculty and students on Wednesday evening. The students, Vaidehi Mujumdar ’13, Saryah Azmat ’11, Cameron Nutt ’11, Allison Arensman Tu’11 and Maija Cheung DMS’13, received an honorable mention and $1,000 for their proposal at Emory University’s Global Health Case Competition in late March.
