Most students write papers so they can graduate but at least one Eastern Michigan University student is writing papers that win awards.
The Association for Marketing and Health Care Research honored EMU MBA student Jarrod Sandel for his paper on healthcare. The Ann Arbor native's paper, which he co-wrote with the head of EMU’s Marketing Department, deals mainly with providing healthcare at home and the role technology plays.
The paper follows the development of home healthcare (an option becoming increasingly popular as Baby Boomers age and finances tighten) and its market. It also expands on the how technology has evolved to play a role in this situation.
And this is all from a supply chain management major in EMU's business school. However, he does work for the IT Dept in the University of Michigan Health System.
