Event Description

**Please register at the official website – https://hclhealth.bemyapp.com/ to be considered a participant for the hackathon.**

 

Pandemics need problem-solvers.

 

In a time of great uncertainty, disruption, and isolation, how can technology keep us connected and help the world get better, and emerge stronger, together to a brighter future?

 

Better solutions aren’t born in isolation but out of great collaboration. In the face of any crisis, we share a common vision of a better world and work together to bring that vision within reach. This collaboration has been the essence of all human innovation.

 

This is why – now more than ever – we need to find ways to come together as innovators, leaders, and empathetic human beings.

 

It is how we will face the uncertainties of tomorrow.

It is our key to shaping a healthier world.

And it is our best chance to build a better future.
