CommunicateHealth to Host First-Ever Health Literacy Hackathon!

 

On October 13 and 14, the inaugural CommunicateHealth Health Literacy Hackathon will challenge participants to create a technology-driven tool to improve how people understand and use health information.

It could be an app, a website, an interactive online tool, a media campaign, or something else! Inspiration and examples will be provided.

Participants will have 1 day to design their tool. Tools don’t need to be fully developed or complete, but presentations should include a plan for how the project could be implemented and launched.

$2,000 Prize

Tools will be judged based on creativity, usability, feasibility, and best use of technology. The first place winner will be awarded $2,000. There will be cash prizes for runners-up.

If you are a:

  • Graphic or web designer
  • Developer or programmer
  • Public health advocate
  • Researcher
  • Writer
  • Person who’s passionate about health 2.0 or new technologies

Then this event is for you!

Participants will compete in teams of 3 to 5 people. You can register as part of a group or as an individual. We’ll match individuals up with a group at the event.
