I School students win CITRIS white paper competition

I School doctoral students Mahad Ibrahim and Melissa Ho were members of a team that shared this year's CITRIS White Paper Competition award. Their proposal, "Coupling Output-based Aid and Mobile Technologies," focuses on IT solutions for healthcare in developing regions. The team will look at the feasibility of using smartphones to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of health service delivery in Uganda, with implications across many developing regions with poor healthcare and limited information technology infrastructure. The winning proposals were each awarded an $8,500 prize.
