IPE @ CUW: Concordia Health Profession Students Excel in State-Wide Case Competition

Team M (NE)

Kevin Xing (School of Pharmacy), Conner Ruosch (School of Nursing) and Kaitlyn Saugstad (Social Work, School of Health Professions), who are pictured above, left to right, entered and won the Northeast Region, AHEC (Area Health Education Centers), Case Competition this fall. This allowed them to travel to the Wisconsin Dells in January to compete at the state level with other IPE teams of students, where they finished in the top eight.

As an IPE team they were tasked with ¬†creating a ‘stroke prevention program’ in a rural Kentucky county. ¬†This project required a tremendous amount of time and effort on their behalf and helped them develop skills for working in a team-based healthcare environment in the future.

Congratulations to our winning IPE team!
