  • Group 1: A counterfactual assessment: quantifying the number of cases and death averted given the public health mitigation programs over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Group 2: A Review of Monkeypox
  • Group 3: Modelling Monkeypox
  • Group 4: Forecasting influenza and COVID-19 infections for Fall 2022
  • Group 5: Estimating the true number of COVID-19 infections

->The presentations will be judged by a panel of judges including a representative from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).

->The winning Health-a-thon project will be announced after the event! The winning team will receive a cash prize incentive of $2000 (CAD) to contribute to the publication of a paper. Not to miss!
