Hacking Health NYC is excited to partner with Nestle Skin Health SHIELD to tackle the fourth most common cause of all human disease – SKIN HEALTH AND WELLNESS. Skin wellness is about more than just disease. Our skin is our largest organ, our interface with the world and our window inside our bodies. If you have an idea and the drive to create real solutions for skin health and wellness,
The SHIELD Skin Tech Hackathon is for YOU!
Win up to $25,000, a work space to develop your solution, and a chance to work with Nestlé Skin Health SHIELD*
Following Challenges Are Presented at the Hackathon:
01 Skin Health Literacy
Life-long skin maintenance, nourishment, and enhancement lead to good skin health and general wellness across your lifetime. The goal for everyone should be life-long skin health.
The challenge: We need solutions to engage, educate, and empower individuals and communities to pursue a lifetime of healthy skin.
02 Nutrition and Skin Health
While we have long understood that there is a relationship between good nutrition and our health, we are still learning exactly how nutrition affects the overall health of our skin.
The challenge: We need solutions to help people integrate skin health-focused nutrition into their daily lives.
03 Engaging Acne
Most of us have had or will have acne at some point in our lives. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology reports that 85% of all young adults experience at least minor acne.
The challenge: We need solutions that empower individuals to live well and own acne.
04 Skin Healthtech for Aging Population
By 2020, the global population over 60 will reach 1 billion! Technology is playing a vital role for older adults and their caregivers.
The challenge: We need solutions that close the gaps in skin health and accessible in-home skin care for older adults.
