|| The Humanitarian Health Design Hackathon at Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) will connect team members from both Baltimore and Gaza over the course of a week to address some of the most pressing healthcare challenges facing refugees in the Gaza Strip. The theme will be “Empowering First Responders ” in Gaza.
A hackathon is an intensive design sprint-like event that brings together participants from multidisciplinary backgrounds and areas of expertise to solve a targeted problem. Hackathons are often used as a great venue to quickly develop novel solutions and technologies.
Hackathon participants are expected to participate full-time during the weekends of June 23-June 24 and June 30-July 1. During the week of June 25-June 29, participants will be expected to call in for joint sessions from 9 AM – 10 AM EST. Outside of these call-in sessions, participants will be expected to work remotely with their team members on their own agreed upon schedules.
