Students to compete in RICE Bowl competition at UMMC

The Myrlie Evers-Williams Institute for the Elimination of Health Disparities at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Rural Interdisciplinary Case Experience (RICE) Bowl on Oct. 25 at 5:30 p.m. in Jackson.

The RICE Bowl is designed to unite a diverse pool of graduate students from multiple academic disciplines to address 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. This event encourages students to think comprehensively and beyond their own disciplines. As a result, students are better prepared to work in interdisciplinary teams to provide the highest quality of care to individuals and populations.
Graduate students from Mississippi State’s food science, nutrition and health promotion program are slated to participate in this novel event. MSU faculty and students at are invited to attend the competition and to support nutrition students participating in the RICE Bowl.
