SONSIEL Nurse Hackathon Sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, Day 1

I spent a weekend photographing SONSIEL’s Nurse Hackathon, sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. The Three-day event brought nurses and people from other professions together to take on human health problems by creating solutions in a supportive setting with colleagues and mentors.

Dinner on Friday evening was followed by one-minute presentations of issues nurses identified that could lead to new products and procedures. Afterward, other attendees who identified with each presentation formed teams to spend the remainder of the weekend formulating a pitch that could lead to their getting funding to make their idea a reality.
