The objective of the Human-Environment-Animal Links to Health (HEALtH) Challenge is to provide students with an opportunity to develop the skills to collaborate across disciplines and institutions to define and understand the multi-dimensional complexity of the major health issues facing us globally.

Participating students come from three partnering universities – Carleton University, University of Saskatchewan, and Michigan State University. Students participate in a half-day Web-Ex workshop conducted simultaneously across the 3 sites, and then are placed in cross-institutional/cross-disciplinary teams to work on a case study to explore and define the contributing factors to a global health issue, and develop approaches to seeking a solution.

The 2017 Challenge concerned anti-microbial resistance.

In March, the teams will present their ideas in an online exhibition. The exhibits will be judged, and the winning team will be awarded a $1000 donation to KIVA, which means that the students continue to work together to invest their funds into global social needs.
