Limited Capacity seats available

The PSU mHealth Challenge is a cross-college idea pitch competition that pairs undergraduate students from the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) with those from the Department of Biobehavioral Health (BBH) in the College of Health and Human Development (HHD). Student teams work together to generate a mobile solution that addresses a societal health issue, then pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. BBH students identify a health need of a specific target population, then create behavioral objectives designed to address the health need. IST students act as technology consultants working with BBH students to understand user needs. Together, teams mock-up a mobile app that addresses the defined health need.
Judges are Jeffrey Goldberg, Mary Good, Ed Marx. Their bios can be found here:http://mhealth.ist.psu.edu/?page_id=397
