Want to use technology to change health care? Then you don't want to miss HackDC 2015!
This fall 250+ university students (along with a few corporate teams) will gather in the Washington, DC Metro area to focus their creativity and coding skills for 36 hours on a great cause: developing mobile apps for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans.
Work with clinical experts and veterans to develop solutions that link to a test instance of the VA's electronic health record while taking advantage of leading-edge software and hardware tools. There will be free food, showers, prizes, API workshops, and fun activities. Make new friends and meet technology vendors, sponsors, and federal healthcare leaders.
- Over 18 years of age.
- Undergraduate, graduate, or postgraduate student at an accredited university.
