What does the event entail?
Students have spent the past two months working on developing a Strategy and series of Project Proposals in response to a Trigger public health problem given to them at the start of the module. Students choose the geographical area to work on and present their proposals as if pitching to a city/regional/national strategic group of local politicians, health leaders, public health and representatives from other disciplines. The aim is to mimic a tendering or ‘bid application’ process. There will be presentations followed by open Q&A.
Do come along and join us and be part of the audience and scrutineers.
