What does the fee include?

The fee includes: a breakfast/lunch/dinner and drinks! And of course the ability to participate in an inspiring and fun weekend working on improving healthcare!

Can I participate for one or two days?

You can only participate if you attend the whole weekend (Friday March 31-Sunday, April 2).

If you really can’t attend the full three days but still want to be part of Hacking Health St. John’s, become a volunteer by emailing katien@mun.ca! Or watch the presentations on Sunday.

Is my idea for a pitch any good?

Yes! As long as your idea is related to healthcare and a possible solution can be prototyped technically, digitally or visually.

Sparkboard is our online platform where you can present your idea/problem before the start of the weekend. Participants will be able to browse the different projects to see what interests them. A good way to get people enthusiastic about your idea!

Join our Slack team to keep up to date with Hacking Health St. John’s.

What about intellectual property?

In general the following guidelines apply as set by Hacking Health.
