Mental Health

Mental health problems are some of the most common issues that are present throughout the world today. These problems can range from dealing with stress to certain disorders that affect daily lifestyles. Within this track, you will design solutions that improve the lifestyle of those affected by mental health issues.

Inpatient Health

It is essential that inpatients have the best possible experience during their stay in hospitals. In order to achieve this, hospitals must maintain the upmost standards in terms of sanitation, efficiency, and service. Participants within this track will design solutions that help keep these standards in the hospital.

Fitness & Nutrition

Maintaining a fitness routine is essential to living a healthy life. What's equally as important is that individuals must fuel their body with the right nutrients in order to keep their bodies in optimal shape; however, many people today face obstacles that keep them from receiving the necessary food. Within this track, participants will find ways to create a food and nutrition narrative: a new paradigm or a remaking of old ones that prioritizes and respects the central position of healthy, tasty, fair food in the human experience.

Women's and Reproductive Health

Women's and reproductive health is often stigmatized and overlooked in numerous fields of health. They require different medical needs from men, and the PCOS Awareness organization is looking to bridge the gap and raise awareness. Participants in this track will help find ways to raise this awareness and to look for better ways to serve women's medical needs.

Global/Rural Health

Access to healthcare is limited in rural and less developed areas around the country and the world. It is important to expand access to quality healthcare in these areas, which could mean developing new technologies and infrastructure to expand the range of current medical services. Participants within this track will design solutions that increase access to healthcare, and/or find ways to make healthcare more affordable.
