Hosts for the June 10/11 Hacking Heroin Cincinnati:
How can new technology plug service delivery gaps and empower people working and living on the frontlines of the opiate epidemic in the Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky region?
Cincinnati Hacking Heroin was a hackathon held for 2 days in June 2017.
We ran the Cincinnati Hacking Heroin Hackathon as a proof of concept for the value of getting more groups to the table for creative ideation and collaborative problem solving about the role technology can play in fighting the opiate epidemic. One of the winning teams is a growing business today, and many partners and participants have continued to work together in new ways a result of the effort.
