What is it?

Baltimore Experiences some of the starkest health disparities in the country, despite being home to the most innovative research institutions, premier medical systems, and most progressive health policy nationally. In 2018 over 700 Citizens died from an overdose. If expectancy can vary by as much as 20 years between two neighborhoods. Mortality rate in the city is 40% higher than the rest of the state in the ranks last on key health outcomes as compared to other jurisdictions in Maryland.

Together we can make Baltimore a leader in digital health. Participants in this track will be creating innovative solutions to some of our cities most pressing challenges and creating a healthier Baltimore where every resident can fulfill their potential by focusing on five key areas:

  • Chronic Disease Prevention and Management
  • Opioids
  • Trauma and Mental Health
  • Aging
  • Emergency Preparedness and Response
