A University of Florida team took first place at the national CLARION student case competition April 15 and 16 in Minneapolis. The competition brings together students from various disciplines to analyze and provide recommendations surrounding an extensive health care case. UF’s team included two students from the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, Ms. Karen Restrepo, a master’s in public health student in the health management and policy concentration, and Ms. Carolina De La Rosa Mateo, a bachelor’s in health science student in the pre-public health track, as well as Mr. Jordan Mullings, an M.B.A. student in the Warrington College of Business. Dr. Erik Black, an assistant professor of pediatrics and the associate director of UF Health’s Office of Interprofessional Education, served as the team’s faculty adviser.
