HBS is hosting the next Business Alliance for Health Management (BAHM) competition! This year's BAHM competition is looking for new business models to encourage healthy choices, through diet, exercise, and lifestyle interventions and other social determinants of health. How can natural foods be made available and cost-effective in low-income communities? Can walking or riding a bike be incentivized? How can individuals be nudged to make the healthy choice instead of the cheap or easy one? And how can this be accomplished without creating a culture of shame around body size?

Teams will be competing against other BAHM member teams. First prize is $10,000; Second prize is $5,000; and Third prize is $2,500. The competition will take place during the HBS Health Care Club Conference on February 9, 2019.

If interested in competing, please read through the attached challenge proposal and guidelines and email me the names of your three team members by Monday, December 3rd. The Health Care Initiative will work with the faculty advisors to select the team to represent HBS.
