HealthHacks | Nov. 2-3, 2019

HealthHacks is similar in structure to a traditional “hackathon,” however the focus is on solving medical unmet needs through any means, from programming to rapid prototyping or developing flow processes. It is a 24-hour period of intense innovation and problem-solving. This is the fourth year of HealthHacks, VCU's annual medical hackathon.
