After the success of the first Global Hackathon, the American Association of Precision Medicine (AAPM) is hosting Act2Hack COVID 2.0, a global COVID-19 healthcare solutions hackathon on July 31st through Aug 3rd. AAPM’s Coronavirus Taskforce (ACT) is inviting the global community to join the ACT2HACK COVID 2.0 hackathon (https://www.aapm.health/act2hack2-0/).
Eligible to participate in this event are data scientists, software engineers, healthcare professionals, domain experts, hackers, data curators, UX designers, digital health experts, entrepreneurs, startups, and other community members.
“Although the pandemic has disrupted our lives, it has accelerated innovation and collaboration in unprecedented ways,” said AAPM CEO Dr. Prasun Mishra. “This hackathon calls for teams to hack various COVID-19 data sets. An important part of the event will be building software solutions to aid clinicians in the field of precision medicine, which focus on health determinants that include genomics, environment, and lifestyle. Every day we hear of someone who has lost their brother, sister, mother, father, friend, or loved one. This is an open invitation to all to join forces and accelerate the pace of innovation through collaboration to save lives.”
