A beginner-friendly health focused hackathon hosted by Women in Computer Science

HackHealth is a day-long, health-focused hackathon to encourage students to make an impact on important fields such as nutrition, fitness, mental health, and medicine using technology. WiCS' mission as an organization is to bridge the gap between women and men in computer science, and we work to extend that to all minority groups. Spring 2020 will be WiCS' 5th annual HackHealth.
