The Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) along with the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP) at the University of Waterloo are planning a hackathon specifically focused on two neurological conditions: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Such an event typically brings together computer programers, software and hardware developers, graphic designers and project managers alongside other enthusiastic participants who will collaborate in an effort to create new and accessible technology.
Hack4Health will provide an exciting space for the creation of practical applications (software, hardware, and social solutions) for people living with MS or Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. The application(s) that emerge from this productive 2-day event will benefit people affected by and/or living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, enhance the profile of both conditions, inspire cutting-edge research at the University of Waterloo, and provide an invaluable platform for social innovation.
Sponsorship opportunities are available.
