Hack4Health (H4H) is a non-traditional hackathon aimed at social impact rather than monetary benefit.
H4H provides an exciting space for undergraduate and graduate students to create practical applications (software, hardware, and social solutions) for people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or dementia (Alzheimer's disease or other dementias).
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
