Take pledge for healthier lifestyle to help CWRU students attend forum

Case Western Reserve University’s Institute for Healthcare Improvement Open School chapter will compete in the 100 Million Healthier Lives Student Pledge-A-Thon.

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement Open School Change Agent Network is a student-driven campaign to improve population health. The CWRU chapter asks the university community to commit to living a healthier life by taking the pledge (no money is needed). Between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15, the school with the most pledges overall will have the opportunity to send four students to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement 27th National Forum.

In addition, the school that has the most pledges on the launch date of the Pledge-A-Thon will be able to send two students to the forum, regardless of the outcome of the overall competition.

Participants can make a pledge online.
