Engineering World Health – UofT Chapter Launch Party!

Thanks to everyone who attended our launch party! It was great to see members from our previous and new faces.
Launch event’s survey results – we need to know more about global health!
The winners of the launch party global health questionnaire are Emanuel and Wendy, who each answered 5 out of 10 questions correctly (you will get a prize!). Most people taking the questionnaire had one question correct. The good thing is that every time you answered incorrectly, it was because you were too pessimistic about the status of world health. This means the world is a better place than what we are imagining! However, it also means that we need to increase our knowledge to be able to focus on the right challenges, so keep coming out to our events to learn more.
The questions for the quiz came from Hans Rosling, a Swedish global health professor. He is a lot of fun to listen to, so we recommend that you check out his most recent TED talk, where he goes into more depth about these issues. If you didn’t get a chance to take the questionnaire, it is available on our home page. See how you stack up against your friends!
