A team of SFU health sciences students and a philosophy master’s student have won the Canadian Evaluation Society’s Student Case Competition.

Four SFU health sciences master’s students, Manal Masud, Cassandra Parsons, Kathy Chan, and Stephanie Liu, along with philosophy master’s student Damien Chen, won the Canadian Evaluation Society’s Student Case Competition. The SFU students beat 13 other teams to win the five-hour case competition.

It was an invaluable learning experience for Masud, Parsons, Chan, and Liu, currently students in the Faculty of Health Sciences’ Master of Public Health (MPH) program. Read about their experience here.

For his part, Philosophy MA student Damien Chen credits his training in writing philosophy papers for helping cultivate big-picture thinking, which he considers important for evaluation or complex problem-solving. Read more about Chen's experience here.
