Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 Public Health Scholar Bowl competition!

The competition consists of two parts:

Case study: Teams in the case-study competition will receive a case two weeks prior to the competition. During those two weeks, team members will work together to propose a solution and prepare a presentation that will be judged by leading public health professionals.

Quiz Bowl: Compete against another team in this quiz-bowl style tournament. With current public health topics ranging from disease outbreaks to global and community health, there's something for everyone. Bring recognition to your team and school as you go head-to-head for cash prizes.
