The Institute of Medicine (IOM) is sponsoring the “Go Viral to Improve Health Contest,” challenging students in health, engineering and computer science programs to create health-related mobile applications (apps) for a chance to win up to $10,000 in prize money.
Participating teams must consist of two to five members and include at least one undergraduate or graduate student pursuing a health-related degree and one pursuing a computer science, engineering or related degree. Teams must register by Feb. 10 and submit their entries by Mar. 28.
Submissions will be judged on design, usability and how well they integrate public health data by a group of five individuals from academia, the government and the private-sector.
