About this event

Graduate students from Mississippi State’s Department of Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion are slated to participate in the sixth annual Rural Interdisciplinary Case Experience Bowl in Jackson. MSU faculty and students are invited to attend and support students participating in the competition. Sponsored by the Myrlie Evers-Williams Institute for the Elimination of Health Disparities at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the RICE Bowl is designed to unite a diverse group of graduate students from multiple academic disciplines to address and develop solutions for complex rural health issues. The competition provides an experiential learning opportunity for students to work in interdisciplinary teams to effectively address a realistic case scenario. Students are encouraged to think comprehensively and beyond their own disciplines. As a result, they are better prepared to work in interdisciplinary teams to provide the highest quality health care to individuals and populations.
