Wingspan Solutions is partnering with West Oakland Health Council and Community Health Care Network to address health inequity. We are hosting our Health Equity Case Competition to generate ideas, provide opportunities, create tangible change, and give teens the chance to potentially win $300. All profits and donations will go towards WOHC and CHCN to improve health in BIPOC and marginalized communities.
The competition has two components: a 3-4 page written report and a 5-minute pitch. The competition is held online via Google Classroom and Google Meet, allowing competitors to work flexibly on their own schedules. Teams of 1-3 will have 48 hours to read a case study on health inequity; propose tech, community/business, or policy solutions; and present their ideas in a report and pitch.
There are many dimensions to health, so we are keeping potential proposals as broad as possible, addressing everything from mental health to environmental health. Participants will also hear from and network with business, healthcare, and nonprofit leaders!
