Preparing students for professional education
What if you have the key to unlocking the most impactful health issues of today? Imagine creating unique solutions that can really make a difference in your community.
What is a Health-a-Thon?
The idea comes from a model where an assembly of the most creative minds directed into solving the most influential health problems of today. With support from various health care professionals, students immerse themselves for a set amount of time to develop real solutions to a health problem.
At the end of the experience, you will showcase their solution, through a developed project, to a panel of judges. Winning projects will receive award dollars to implement their projects in their communities!
