Emory Global Health Case Competition Team: April 9th-10th Blog: 

  It has now been 5 days since we received our hypothetical global health case problem from Emory University and we are frantically researching how to prevent and treat obstetric fistulas in India. We have spoken to a handful of faculty members to gain insight on their experience and research in repairing fistulas. And we are now boarding our flight to Atlanta to put together the pieces of our research and present a solution to world-renowned experts at Emory's Rollins School of Public Health. 

  For the last 6 years, Einstein and Cardozo have sent a team consisting of 5 or 6 students to Emory University for the International Global Health Case Competition. The purpose of the competition is to bring together a team of students pursuing a variety of degrees (medicine, public health, law, business) to address a hypothetical global health problem. The case is released one week before the competition and 23 teams from the United States and abroad go through the same process of extensive research into an area that most of us know nothing about.  

  Over the last 5 days, we have quickly become experts in epidemiology, infrastructure, surgical procedures, social context, health care systems, and governmental and community partners involved in preventing and treating obstetric fistulas in India. We have consumed the literature and consulted people to engage in a problem we know little about and are using our professional backgrounds to develop a solution. And that is the goal of the competition: to allow students to think beyond the scope of their degree and apply it to a larger global context. 

  We have gone through this process before in our first year of medical school, when we investigated and presented on how investments in water sanitation in rural China could improve health and economic outcomes. We had an outstanding experience and wanted to go again! We are thrilled to be heading down to Atlanta with four other outstanding teammates to now put together our solution, and hope to make you proud!
