Dear GHC 2014 Participants,
We were just alerted to a problem with our website -- apparently, our website has not yet updated the case study guide file to the latest version (probably due to file size issues). Please bear with us and accept our apologies for any inconveniences as we try to work through the issue. In the meantime, we have attached the case study guide file via e-mail so you may go ahead and begin reading it.
We would like to remind participants that we will have printed copies of the case study guide at the conference. In addition, students are allowed to bring ONE additional secondary source (either previously printed or downloaded to a computer) based on individual research. We would like to point you to this webpage, from the Harvard College Guide to Using Sources, to assist you with choosing meaningful and appropriate secondary sources.
We will send out a final email with logistical details before the conference date. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns. Best of luck in your preparation, and we look forward to seeing you on campus in less than five days.
Congratulations! It is our pleasure to inform you that you have been selected to participate in the Harvard Undergraduate Global Health Forum’s 2014 high school conference, Global Health Challenge. The conference is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 5th at Boylston Hall (on Harvard’s undergraduate campus, in Harvard Yard).
As the conference date is approaching, we would like to inform you of a few exciting updates:
This year’s case study guide will be posted on our website one week before the conference, on Sunday, March 30th. Please look through this guide before you arrive — it will provide you with a great overview of the topic we are addressing this year, “Childhood Mortality in Chad.” This guide will serve as your primary source when writing proposals, so it will be to your advantage to study it carefully.
You will find a 2014 conference packet attached to this e-mail. This packet includes a welcome address, conference schedule, and competition rules. Please read through the competition rules carefully as they have changed from past years.
If you have any questions, please e-mail email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you on Harvard’s campus soon!
