This project is designed to provide students with the opportunity to explore a randomly assigned public health issue that is of global concern. Students had the option to take a broader (truly global) view of the issue or to focus in on a nation or region where the issue is having (or will have) the greatest impact. Students were tasked with providing background information on the assigned health issue, presenting the basic epidemiology, and discussing risk factors, social determinants, and solutions (current or future).
