HPAA Students take second place in annual NASHE competition
Three Health Policy and Administration graduate students – Saumya Sehgal, Jennifer
Bonds, and Jasmine Ballard – took second place in the annual Everett V. Fox Student Case Competition held in Dallas, Texas sponsored by the National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE). This year’s competition was held from from October 2nd to the 6th.
This competition is designed to give first and second year graduate students an opportunity to apply their educational knowledge, creativity, and experience to analyze real issues and challenges facing a healthcare organization. This year’s case involved an academic medical center faced with a decision to form an affiliation/strategic alliance with a community hospital. Twenty teams competed. Saumya, Jennifer, and Jasmine presented their analysis and recommendations to a panel of judges representing leaders in the health care field, including corporate sponsors and faculty in health administration programs.
