Beyond! Health Hack
What is Beyond! Health Hack?
In collaboration with the International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA), Beyond! Health Hack will bring pharmaceutical and medical students together from across 18 countries to create a future where the preventable burden of influenza is a thing of the past.
Over the course of three days, at the week-long 2020 Asia-Pacific Pharmaceutical Symposium (APPS) in Singapore, participants will be briefed on a series of ‘real-world challenges’ that stand in the way of influenza vaccine uptake, with student teams brainstorming unique solutions from scratch. Solutions can come in all forms, from individual level, such as social media campaigns, to system level changes in healthcare administration.
The hackathon will be an immersive experience, offering students the opportunity to collaborate, ideate, solve real problems while networking and being mentored by experts. Each winning team member will be provided a professional training opportunity to master presentation and negotiation skills to effectively succeed in their careers.
