The College of Public Health hosted the 2nd Annual CPH Student Case Competition on Tuesday. With a focus on improving infant mortality in central Ohio, six teams of graduate and undergraduate students developed plans to increase community outreach and the enrollment of high-risk women into the Moms2B program. 

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center sponsored the event and provided the two winning teams with cash prizes: $1,500 for the first-place team and $750 for the second-place team.

First place was awarded to Justin Casto, Carra Gilson, Corinne Hendrock and Erin Shafer; and Katie Brown, Sana Lalani, Elli Schwartz and Elaine Louden came in second place.

The competition was judged by Pat Gabbe, MD, founder of Moms2B; Taniqua Ingol, MPH ’17, BSPH ’15, from Nationwide Children’s Hospital; and Tonni Oberly, MPH ’16, from the Wexner Medical Center.

 

Videos and presentations will be posted soon.
