Innovating together to improve health communication
The University of Michigan and alumnus Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, are teaming up to host a weekend-long hackathon to drive new ideas and tools for health communication.
Join us as we bring bright minds from the worlds of health, digital technology, design, communication and information science to the U-M campus. The charge: work together to identify and rapidly develop new approaches to solving the problems of delays, missed opportunities and even tragedy that can come from poor communication of health information.
Experts from U-M, industry and community organizations will provide information and guidance. Teams will present their prototypes for judging on the final afternoon, competing for a chance to develop their ideas further with the help of U-M mentors. All participants will retain the right to develop their ideas after the event.
Organized by the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation and Michigan Medicine, U-M’s academic medical center, the event is supported by a gift from the Gupta family.
