A group of students from Wright State University placed first in a national video case competition to promote the improvement of the health care system to better address the opioid epidemic. The first place prize in the 2018 IPE Student Video Case Competition, sponsored by the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research, was $1,200.
The group of students from Wright State produced a video titled “Dayton’s Opioid Epidemic: Prevention and Treatment Strategies.” The team included Master of Public Health students Elizabeth Williams and Mussa Zatreh; Megan Smith, a member of the Boonshoft School of Medicine class of 2020 who is in the Physician Leadership Development Program; and psychology student Anna Hayburn.
Competition participants submitted videos that responded to a fictional case. Each student team shared its vision for how the health care system could work better to help a fictional family and others facing similar struggles with opioid addiction.
