Event Information:

UConn’s first Annual Global Health Hackathon: GloHHack 2019 is being organized by UConn Global Health Spaces on Campus. This 24-hour event, which will be held from November 15-16, invites students from all different majors and backgrounds to come together and create innovative solutions to pressing issues in global health. The theme for this year seeks to explore the relationship between the environment and human health, with areas of focus on air and water pollution, natural disasters, climate change, natural resource scarcity and much more! We will foster student innovation from across UConn and provide an opportunity for students to challenge themselves and gain a greater understanding of Global Health.
