Health + Innovation
Shaping the next generation of health leaders
The Health + Innovation track (formerly Health + Tech) is an immersive undergraduate learning experience that inspires students to be innovators for social good. Students engage in experiential, team-based learning focused on creating digital technology solutions for public health challenges reaching populations that are often excluded from the digital economy. Through project-based curriculum and co-curricular activities, fellows work to address real-world public health challenges by engaging with communities to understand needs and working with industry to develop viable solutions.
