Code for Philly, DataPhilly, R Ladies Philly, and the Philly Data Jawn are partnering with the Health Federation of Philadelphia and Prevention Point to host a data science hackathon to answer pertinent questions around the Opioid Crisis in Philadelphia. The goals of this event are to provide health organizations with insights that may normally be unavailable to them and to create analyses that help inform the public about the opioid epidemic in our city. Anyone who is interested in data science and is willing to dig into the data is welcome to participate. All experience levels are welcome! The hackathon is a multi-day event that will kick off on Feb 7th and conclude on March 17th (go to https://codeforphilly.org/events/datahack2020 for full timeline and more info).
The hackathon will begin with an overview of the hack timeline and expectations followed by Partner Presentations from Prevention Point and the Health Federation of Philadelphia discussing the work they are doing and the unanswered questions they have. Attendees have the opportunity to ask partners follow-up questions.
