The premier university and high school hackathon for students in metropolitan Chicago, northern Illinois, and the surrounding states is at Northern Illinois University.
Why hack health and wellness?
Northern Illinois University recognizes that future health and well-being of our region depends upon the focus and skill sets developed by our students of today and those of tomorrow. Integrated and collaborative interdisciplinary events such as Huskie Hack provide opportunities for peer to peer learning while addressing real problems from a 360-degree perspective.
For 24 hours, student hackers and medical experts will explore solution finding to current and future challenges in health and wellness. At the end of the event, they will have the opportunity to present their solutions to regional judges and experts in healthcare innovation.
