Ohio State / UPS Solve-A-Thon Focuses on International Health and Humanitarian Assistance
Under the leadership of Aimee Ulstad (ISE) and Charlie Covert (UPS), Ohio State students were given an all-day opportunity to interact with executives from UPS and three major non-profit organizations (American Red Cross, Save the Children, and World Health Organization), giving the students an opportunity to network, understand the real-world problems faced by these organizations, and explore methods to help solve them.
Students gained insights into the challenges of international healthcare by talking with field experts and participating in whiteboarding sessions.
Three teams won $1,000 for the most creative and practical ideas. The students are also being considered for internships with the participating organizations.
