Challenge

The event was a collaborative effort geared towards creating solutions for the most pressing issues regarding emerging technologies and communities of color, from the ground up.

Winning Idea

The winning team focused on finding policy initiatives that provide accessible, cost-effective, and quality telehealthcare to reduce racial health disparities that exist in communities of color. Their solution focused on access and adaptability of telehealth with a culturally competent approach, and included leveraging the FCC, HRSA, HUD, and HHS to expand telehealth services, and tax incentives for the private sector to develop viable solutions with the public sector. The judges were very excited about the proposal, especially Commissioner Starks.
