Health Equity Research Hackathon: Part One
The Health Equity in Research Hackathon is the inaugural event for the new Health Equity in Research Unit, a joint initiative between the CTSI-CN and the Center for Translational Research within the Children’s National Research Institute.
The Health Equity in Research Hackathon is a team-based collaborative competition. Inspired by the MIT "Engineering Health Equity" Hackathon, this fast-paced event challenges our research teams to find new, creative ways to solve big problems.
At this event, participants will gather in diverse teams to discuss and refine the selected app ideas. They will learn from technical and scientific experts and brainstorm app-based approaches to address health equity. Registrants will be placed on a multidisciplinary team and given prompts and guidance to help turn raw ideas into compelling pitches.
