The PSU mHealth Challenge Semi Final

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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) and the College of Nursing (NURS). 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 and nursing 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 and nursing students to understand user needs. Together, teams mock-up a mobile app that addresses the defined health need.

Come watch all 10 teams pitch their ideas to a panel of industry judges. Top 4-6 teams will be advanced to the finals to be held Tuesday, Nov 17th at 6:00 in the IST Cybertorium.
