Promotional flyer for the August 2014 Codeathon


Codeathon: Coding for Women's Heath took place August 15-17 2014 at Ace Hotel New York. Ace Hotel, in partnership with the Clinton Foundation Health Matters Initiative (CHMI) and Jawbone presented this installment the health-based series. With a focus on women's heath, and building upon the "intersection of technology and data", the event aimed to spur innovation in the health and technology space, and to set standards for what a "healthy codeathon" environment should entail. This instance of Codeathon was supported by Sweetgreen and Equinox.
