Are you interested in leading a life of social impact? Do you believe in social impact through global health? Do you want to generate solutions to health challenges, both local and global?  Do you believe in meeting of minds to hack solutions to chronic health problems? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then join us at our first MiddHackathon this January 23rd at Middlebury College where students, with support from locally and internationally recognized mentors, will meet to present challenges, share ideas, and propose possible solutions to tackle some of the pressing health problems of our time.
