Want to be a Mentor at the event? 

We are looking for mentors to be a part of the Hackathon. We need a mix of engineers, healthcare professionals, and business experts, among others. Mentors are a critical resource for the success of a Hackathon. A good mentor is engaging and helpful, avoids tearing down teams ideas in a destructive way, and instead directs conversations in a constructive way, building upon what has already been done by the group. If you believe that this describes you, please apply to be a mentor.
