Hackathon: Access to Health Care in Rural and Underserved Communities


Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine Hackathon 2018
This event will bring together patients, students, faculty, developers, caregivers and more for an intense few days (and nights) of innovation. Attendees will form teams, identify challenges and build technology solutions over the course of a few short days. Join groups of like-minded innovators and problem solvers as we identify and solve health care challenges facing rural and underserved communities.

Our inaugural Hackathon will  collaborate with local and statewide health care communities. Participants, mentors and judges from around the region (and the world) will be invited participate.

Is there a health care challenge in your community that you’d like to solve? An innovative idea you’d like to see become reality? Maybe your experience with design and development can be put to use creating the next great health care innovation. More than just a discussion, a Hackathon is your chance to take an idea from concept to reality in a few short days.
