Health Policy Essay Contest

Kaiser has announced a Call for Submissions for its 2nd Annual Student Essay Contest, open to both undergraduate and graduate students (to be judged separately).  Here is the call:

The date is November 24th, 2008. You have just started a job as an analyst working on the President elect's health care transition team. The director of the transition team has asked you to draft a memo to flesh out the health priorities for the new Administration on a major health policy issue. Choose a candidate and an issue area (from the list below) and identify the major policies or strategies that the Administration could develop to advance this issue. Make sure to include evidence and analysis to support your recommendations. Your priorities and strategies should be consistent with the proposals forwarded by the candidates in the campaign. You should also address the challenges in implementing your recommendations, such as budgetary and political considerations, delivery system issues, and how different stakeholders and constituencies would perceive the proposals. Your memo should not exceed 800 words.

Starving students, take note: First prize is $1000, and second prize is $500.  Entries are due March 2008.  Further details are available online.
