Map the System 2022 Global Final
Registration is now open to the general public for the Map the System 2022 Global Final! Six finalists – chosen based on their level of insight and application of systems thinking – will advance to the public final round on June 19 from 4am-11am EST (held in London) and compete for cash prizes and audience favorite. These teams will share their systems analysis with peers, the wider community and with practitioner experts and academic educators who have guided them on their journey. The event will be livestreamed to an online audience and a small live audience to join in person.
The UNC Gillings Team “Illuminating SPARCS for Maternal Health Equity in NC” is one of the six competing teams! This team includes Hiba F., doctoral candidate in the Department of Maternal and Child Health, Doyoung Kim, doctoral candidate in the Department of Health Policy and Management, and Sharita R. Thomas, doctoral candidate in the Department of Health Policy and Management. SPARCS (Systems, Paradigms, and Restorative Community Solutions) for Maternal Health Equity in N.C. is applying systems thinking to understand and identify the many components, conditions, and connections working to sustain inequitable maternal outcomes and the hierarchy of solutions that can target this system in tandem with the undesirable outcome it produces. We wish them luck!
