MEDCAMP Health-a-thon

ANNOUNCING the start of MEDCAMP Health-a-thon for 2017!

Northeast Ohio Medical University and the Area Health Education Center program are excited to announce the restructuring of our premier MEDCAMP program called, 2017 MEDCAMP Health-a-thon, based off the popular hack-a-thon programs being conducted at universities all across the country!

What is a health-a-thon?  The idea comes from a model where students are given a health care problem and they immerse themselves for a set amount of time to produce a product as a solution to the problem.

Date:  July 14-15, 2017

Where:  Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED)

Who is Eligible?

For 2017, MEDCAMP Health-a-thon will be for students 18 years and older who are currently enrolled in high school, college, or at a university.  In addition, applicants must be in good academic standing and reside in one of the following counties:

Ashland, Ashtabula, Carroll, Columbiana, Crawford, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Holmes, Lake, Lorain, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Richland, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Tuscarawas or Wayne

First consideration is given to applicants from groups underrepresented in health care professions.

How to Apply?

Students may nominate themselves or may be nominated to the program by a teacher, guidance counselor, or professor.

Look to apply for the 2017 MEDCAMP Health-a-thon later this winter!
