What is Beyond! Health Hack?
In collaboration with the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation’s (IPSF) and the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA), Beyond! Health Hack will bring pharmaceutical and medical students together from more than 18 countries to create a future where the preventable burden of influenza is a thing of the past.
Over the course of two days, participants will be briefed on a series of ‘real-world challenges’ that stand in the way of influenza vaccine uptake, with student teams brainstorming unique solutions from scratch on an interactive online platform. Solutions can come in all forms, from individual level, such as social media campaigns, to system level changes in healthcare administration.
This event is supported by Sanofi. It will be run via a robust gated platform – only accessible by registered attendees and provide meaningful interactions and networking opportunities. The hackathon will be an immersive virtual experience, offering students the opportunity to collaborate, ideate, solve real problems while being mentored by experts from the fields of infectious diseases, vaccines, public health and life sciences. Each winning team member will be provided a professional training opportunity to master presentation and negotiation skills to effectively succeed in their careers.
