There’s no shortage of important health challenges to tackle in the world and, with  Flint still in the throes of a well-publicized water crisis, some of those problems hit very close to home. With that in mind, the University of Michigan School of Public Health is hosting the third annual “Innovation in Action” competition, which harnesses the talents of UM students to tackle a real-world health challenge. Teams will take on problems like these:  how physicians interact with patients with mental disorders, minimizing food waste, and redesigning community centers in Detroit. Come see the final student presentations as they compete for cash prizes up to $10,000.
