As of 2019, firearm-related injuries became the leading cause of death for youth in the United States. Are you interested in coming up with creative solutions to address youth firearm violence? Public Health IDEAS for Preventing Firearm Injuries is making space for engineering students to collaborate with public health students to address firearm violence in the form of a Design Jam.
At this Design Jam you will apply design thinking principles to devise solutions for a persistent public health challenge: How might we utilize public health expertise and principles to lower youth firearm injuries in Michigan communities?
Facilitated by the Center for Socially Engaged Design, you will team up with public health students and representatives from public health departments, community organizing, and those with lived experience to problem-solve and learn together. To be considered for this opportunity, apply by March 21. Space is limited!
Selected applicants will receive an email with more details. Please note that this opportunity is for engineering students.
