As part of a universitywide effort to bring light to Global Health issues through the 2013-2015 Biennial Theme: Global Health! The Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs hosted the “Health Across Borders Science Fair” at the Liberty Science Center on April 13, 2014. Rutgers student organizations were invited to present interactive exhibits displaying their work, with a unique twist. The visiting K–12 students and their families were asked to be the judges. Eight student organizations from a variety of disciplines participated, and over 200 visitors attended. The event encouraged the interaction between Rutgers students and the community, while bringing many important global health issues into the spotlight such as nutrition and disease.
