The first Baylor College of Medicine Global Health Hackathon, established by Global Innovation Center and hosted by Baylor Global Initiatives, was held Sept. 19-20, 2015.
Around 100 hackers gathered for the event to solve a variety of health problems. Hackers split up into 18 teams and armed themselves with laptops, building supplies and a large group of diverse academic mentors. The teams worked throughout the weekend to solve problems caused by lack of resources, communications difficulty and, in the case of a problem presented by NASA, the vast expanse of space.
