Created by and for undergraduates who are interested in the intersection of healthcare, tech, and business, Husky Health Innovation Challenge (HHIC) was founded in 2018 as the first healthcare focused case competition for undergraduates in the Greater Boston Area. Despite Boston’s rich healthcare ecosystem, healthcare-related case competitions have been overwhelmingly limited to graduate students. Undergraduates bring a fresh perspective to this critical space.
This event is open to ALL undergraduate students in the Boston area, with cash prizes and swag. In teams of three to four, participants will propose innovative digital health solutions to a salient issue in healthcare and the topic of our case. The top five proposals will be selected to present their solutions to a panel of judges on Pitch Day this March 27th.
