Events / GiveBackLabs: Health Tech

Overview

Join us this July for another GiveBackLabs designed to explore the intersection of technology and health.

We’re bringing together passionate and tech-driven innovators to team up, learn from our experts, and practice design skills. You’ll leave with the tools you need to keep exploring ideas on your own, alongside an incredible community.

Plus, enjoy a catered lunch provided by AndHealth.

Who is this for?

Anyone interested in learning more about how technology can fuel advances to health equity and the day to day well being of members of the community. If you get excited about ideating, building, designing, and collaborating, this is for you – regardless of your current career.

What will we do?

Dive into brainstorming, prototyping, and validating ideas that can make a real difference on the health outcomes of individuals. Four experts will present topics that they have been working closely on. You choose one area to focus on for the day – and we will take care of the rest!

Why Attend?

Investing in the community is more important than ever. Innovation can help us create a more equitable future. By attending GiveBackLabs, attendees will gain valuable insights into the world of this topic and learn skills that they can apply to their own ideas.

We will be working in the following focus areas:

Mental/Behavioral Health

Reproductive Justice

Health Care Affordability

About GiveBackLabs:

GiveBackLabs are an opportunity to dive deep in a specific issue area (think Green Tech, Reproductive Justice, Health Equity) alongside others who are as passionate about it as you are. Designed to be a shorter-sprint than the typical GiveBackHack event, but with all of the same key components: Impact, Community, and Ideas.


Judges & Mentors

The list of mentors and judges will be added soon!
