Noah Perin, CEO of VIA Global Health, has been invited to keynote the 9thAnnual Global Health Design Competition at Rice University on March 29th. In addition to his keynote, Noah will also be one of the judges in the competition.

The Rice 360° Ninth Annual Undergraduate Global Health Technologies Design Competition will be held on Friday, March 29, 2019, in the Bioscience Research Collaborative Auditorium at Rice University. The competition will feature over 20 student teams from national and international universities who will present their low-cost global health technologies.  Entries will be judged on the quality of the problem definition, the effectiveness and potential impact of the design solution, and the likelihood that the solution can be successful in improving healthcare delivery in low-resource settings by faculty, clinicians, and private and public sector partners from around the country.

“This is an incredible opportunity for the student teams, but also for VIA,” said Noah. “I am thrilled to be hearing from and, more importantly, learning from the student teams. Their passion for addressing global health challenges by using health technology innovation to overcome those challenges is inspiring, and the industry needs all of their passion and innovation.”
