Ideas for Change 2018

The UCD Social Medicine Society presents Ideas for Change 2018 on Thursday 1st March 2018 from 6:30pm in C006, UCD Health Sciences Centre.

Ideas for Change is an interfaculty team competition. Four teams will compete against each other to come up with the best and most innovative solution, idea and proposal related to the chosen social medicine topic and will be judged by a panel of experts.

This year's topic is: “Beating the binge: How to tackle the nation’s substance abuse problem?”

This year’s competition is due to take place on Thursday 1st March 2018 in UCD. The organisers hope that this event will create a platform for students interested in street and inclusion medicine.
