A hackathon is an event where developers, designers, innovators, data scientists, and other domain experts get together for a sprint-like event to collaborate on a project. We are challenging innovators to ideate and work together on ideas to pitch designs, policies, or other innovations to solve prevalent medical issues of today’s society.
Over the course of 2 days, students are given a prompt and must provide a solution and pitch within the given time. During this time, students are able to listen to our guest speakers and participate in workshops and other challenges hosted by professionals.
