Hearst Business Media asks,
how can we help people make better choices about their own health?

Undergraduates, graduate students and post-docs from all schools and disciplines will be invited to imagine the games, biometric devices, clinical tools, and social networks that could drive people to be accountable for their own health and live disease-free. Proposals may include concepts ranging from health awareness, monitoring specific conditions, disease or general fitness, to life choices such as food, exercise, environment, and education.
