A little about the logo and how it represents the spirit of the hackathon.

The Health Hackathon logo was designed by Chip Dong, HHKL’s Design Lead. (http://www.madebychip.com)

It is inspired by the game of Tetris. Tetris is a tile-matching puzzle video game, originally designed and programmed by Russian game designer Alexey Pajitnov. Our hackathon will be anchored in collaboration and matching of different talents to achieve an objective. The ability to form a congruous group wins the game!

The theme is “Re-IMAGINING HEALTHCARE”
