Stand for the Kids Day

Wednesday, October 17

PhiDE, along with APhiO, PhiMu, MUDM, and College Mentors, is participating in Stand For the Kids Day, and you're invited!

Stand For the Kids Day is a nationwide day recognized to support children in Children's Miracle Network hospitals on Wednesday, October 17th.

This year there will be blanket making, card making, a donut sale, a toy drive, a book drive, a social media table, and a 5K to bring students together and to make as large of an impact as possible on Children's Miracle Network.

If you're interested in getting involved here are some things you can do:

  1. Donate Toys and Books to the donation drives (you drop things off in the basement of Hanna House)
  2. Stop by the donut sale on Wednesday Oct 17th. (there will be tables at Armstrong, Farmer, and the Seal)
  3. Sign up for the 5K

And don't forget to attend the closing ceremony, represent Miami, and be there when all of the proceeds are donated to CMN!

For more information, or to get involved, you can reach out to Callen Conroy at or any of the student organizations involved.

Global Health Case Competition

Miami University's third-annual Global Health Case Competition, an academic competition in which teams of students collaborate to design a solution to a real-world global health problem, begins Sunday, November 4th!

What Is It?

Teams of 4-6 will be presented with a prompt asking them to address a topical global health issue on Sunday, November 4th. These teams will have one week to design a innovative, appropriate, and sustainable solution to alleviate the problem. Teams will then present their case in front of a panel of judges with careers in a variety of global health-related fields on Sunday, November 11th. An awards ceremony with a key-note speaker will occur on the evening of Monday, November 12th. The best participants will be given the opportunity to compete in the International Global Health Case Competition at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in the spring.

Who Can Participate?

The competition is free and open to students of all majors and career paths. Students may register as a team or as individuals, in which case we will assign them to a team. Teams must consist of at least three different colleges of the university (for example, College of Arts and Sciences, Farmer School of Business, and School of Creative Arts). We will do our best to work with you to match individuals with teams to meet registration requirements. This competition is a great opportunity for students to built their creative thinking skills while boosting their resumes.
