Are you ready to change the future of health?

What if the most creative minds channeled their focus into solving the most impactful problems of today? Imagine if we could apply the ingenuity that powers the most profound technology into the most fundamental of all human concerns: health. MedHacks is the start. Join us for our medical hackathon at the world’s pinnacle of medical care, Johns Hopkins University.

At MedHacks 2015, we're selecting the top innovative technologists, scientists, healthcare professionals, and engineers to build amazing things together. Hackers across all disciplines will unite to meet with the experts in every part of the medical field here at Johns Hopkins to develop their solutions to healthcare problems across the globe. At the end of the event, teams will have the opportunity to present their projects. Winners will be chosen by a board of judges.
