The PSU mHealth Challenge 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.

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

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.

Competitions are held in the fall duringĀ Global Entrepreneurship Week GEW logo
