Thank You

The 2016 Public Health Think Tank brought together students from universities across the UAE to develop grassroots solutions to reduce the number of road traffic incidents among youth in the UAE. The Core Team is grateful for the overwhelming interest that students and universities from across the UAE showed in addressing the issue, which resulted in a record number of applicants to the Think Tank — 118 students from across the UAE.

The Core Team would once again like to extend its gratitude to the speakers, judges, team leaders, facilitators, and volunteers who helped make PHTT 2016 possible. We thank the NYUAD Institute, the Office of Student Life, and the Public Health Research Center for funding the event, and Dr. Abdishakur Abdulle, Dr. Alexandra Dimitri, Andrea Leinberger-Jabari, and Victor Lindsay, in particular for their invaluable support and advice.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check out the diverse proposals that the teams at PHTT 2016 devised as well as photos from Day One and Day Two.
