AGE-WELL and Hacking Health have teamed up to launch a national ideation competition. The Competition will be conducted over a series of ideathons. An ideathon is a collaborative event where diverse stakeholders harness their collective knowledge and creativity to brainstorm innovative solutions to pressing challenges. Participants use user-centric design techniques and methodologies (such as ideation, journey mapping, and prototyping), and the creation of an initial business case to propose a novel solution. The kick off will take place in Toronto on Feb 3rd, 1-6:30pm. You must register and attend an ideathon/workshop to enter the competition.

Recap of our First Event of the Year!

Thanks to everyone that came out to our last event to meet new people and enjoy free pizza! In our last event, members completed an engineering challenge, answered some trivia and discussed how they would approach world health issues for the chance to win prizes. Additionally we had the opportunity to speak with a Summer Institute alumnus about summer internship opportunities. If you weren’t able to make it out to this event, or if you’re looking participate in more events with EWH, worry not, there will be more opportunities to meet the team and learn about summer opportunities!
