Students were charged with developing a national turnkey campaign that can be used by colleges and local organ donation agencies to increase donor registrations and advocacy among 18 to 24 year olds. Hofstra's case competition presentation team included the following students: Briana Garcia, Natasha Jaisinghani, Samuel Little, Akanksha Mittal, and Steven Morin. Other members of the team included: Alia Ishak, Annmarie Lupo, Sean Raftery, and William Sheridan.
