Health Disparities Codeathon: Project Proposals Due April 26

The NIH Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS), in partnership with the Howard University Research Centers for Minority Institutions Program, is hosting a virtual codeathon June 21–24, 2021, to address health disparities. Project proposals are due Monday, April 26, 2021.

This codeathon will focus on building tools, pipelines, and other analysis and visualization techniques on topics relating to health disparities, such as metabolic syndrome, maternal morbidity, or COVID-19 disparities. ODSS is particularly interested in proposals for pipelines and analyses of large-scale public health data sets; data interoperability; how to use machine learning techniques; and tutorial pipelines and educational tools.
