APHA’s Public Health Codeathon

Where we live, learn, work and play has a profound effect on our health.

Join developers, designers, coders, public health professionals, students and others at APHA’s Public Health Codeathon, Nov. 14-16, in New Orleans to develop tools that connect place and health. Open to beginners and experts, Codeathon participants will work in teams to create apps, platforms, visualizations and other innovations to help promote health and prevent disease in our communities.

Public health agencies and organizations are on the front lines of protecting the health of communities. Develop an app to help them connect community members to tobacco cessation services. Design a program to help make Affordable Care Act preventive health screenings more widely accessible. Create tools to collect data to support public health research. Bring your innovation ideas.

Innovations created during the Codeathon will be judged by a panel of experts who will award prizes for winning entries.

The Public Health Codeathon will be held in conjunction with APHA’s 142nd Annual Meeting and Exposition, which is themed “Healthography: How Where You Live Affects Your Health and Well-Being.” Separate registration is required to attend the APHA Annual Meeting.
