HealthTech is modeled after the tech industry’s “hackathon” and aims to foster collaboration among students from various disciplines by uniting them for their passion within the healthcare fields. Students will work with nonprofit organizations to solve pressing problems — from mental health to geriatrics – faced by these groups in order to make a tangible impact within in their community

Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
Submit your project before the deadline on March 14th. Then, there is a half-hour screening before judging where we check to make sure that your project was submitted correctly and that it is a completed product.
If you experience any technical difficulties during submission, please reach out to the help desk channel as soon as possible and no later than 5 minutes after the deadline. Once the judging process begins, we are unable to accept late submissions.
After the screening period is completed, you will be notified if your project passed. In that case, you will be connected to a judge to present your solution. HackGT will be offering a "How to Present Your Project" Workshop on Sunday to offer suggestions on communicating with the judges, where we can further answer any questions on the rubric.
A detailed rubric will be released once hacking begins Saturday, March 13th so that you can tailor your solutions with the final judging in mind.
