The mHealth Challenge

Next Challenge: November 17th


This engaged scholarship event is a cross-college idea pitch competition that pairs undergraduate students from the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) with those from the Department of Biobehavioral Health (BBH) in the College of Health and Human Development.

How it works

Students team work together to generate a mobile solution that addresses a societal health issue, then pitch their ideas to a panel of judges.

presentation3Biobehavioral Health (BB H) students identify a health need of a specific target population, then create behavioral objectives designed to address the health need.

IST students act as technology consultants working with BBH students to understand user needs. Together the teams mock-up a mobile app that addresses the defined health need.
