Columbia University’s BMES (Biomedical Engineering Society) will be hosting a IN-PERSON Healthcare Hackathon on February 18th to 19th 2023 at Columbia University in the City of New York. You all are invited to sign up. This all-day, 2-day event will consist of people with diverse perspectives such as clinicians, engineers, designers, software developers and entrepreneurs come together in an intense, fun-filled, two-day weekend to develop and build solutions that could address challenges facing healthcare today. The event will consist of plenty of networking opportunities with fellow peers and graduate students.
