Health. Collaboration. Impact.

Join us as we solve healthcare’s biggest challenges! Jefferson Health Hack is three days of problem solving, networking, collaboration, and a ton of fun! Three grand prize winners will receive $5,000 in funding!  

A healthcare hackathon thrives on the collision of different worlds, experiences, and cultures. It brings together people from disparate disciplines who may not work together otherwise, to dream up scalable solutions for the most pressing issues in healthcare. These meetups can drive ideas and startups worth millions. They can also jump start significant improvements in our day-to-day practices.
