Health Sciences Academy 2021 HealthFusion Team Challenge

Fri, 19 Mar 2021

The Health Sciences Academy is delighted to host the 2021 Health Fusion Team Challenge National Final on Wednesday 24th March at 7 pm. 

The Health Fusion Team Challenge is an intervarsity competition that provides an opportunity for students from all health disciplines to work collaboratively with colleagues from different professions to meet a challenge set around complex care issues. This year, the case study focuses on a woman from Afghanistan with gestational diabetes, who has a number of health, social and psychological needs. Teams from the University of Limerick, NUI Galway, University College Cork, and Trinity College Dublin will share their presentations on their approach to her care plan. At the final event, they uphold their plan to a panel of judges who decide which team has demonstrated the most expertise in teamwork and collaboration.

The team members representing UL are:

Sinead Kennedy Physiotherapy
Georgina Brassil Speech & Language
Eavan Brennan Midwifery
Pei-Pei Liao Medicine
Sarah O Keefe  Dietetics
Bukola Bolarinwa Medicine
Megan Carroll Psychology


They were successful at an internal heat held on 5th March to go forwards to represent UL at the national competition. Best wishes to all involved. It is great to have Eavan Brennan BSc Midwifery student on the UL Team.
