This month, we're extremely excited to have the Northeast Florida Data Science for Social Good 2018 Cohort. The presentation last year was so great that we couldn't miss the chance to celebrate this years interns!
Florida Data Science for Social Good (FL-DSSG) program hosted at the University of North Florida (UNF) blends data science and technology design to inform and solve important social problems in Northeast Florida. FL-DSSG program is an intensive 12-week internship that invites students to tackle data-rich projects that have the potential for substantial social impact. The 2018 internship program ran from June 4th to August 24th, supported eight interns, and four community partners. Each project addressed a wicked problem facing Jacksonville residents, such as public health, children welfare, generational poverty, and at-risk youth.
At the Big Data JAX meetup, FL-DSSG program directors and interns will discuss findings and reveal insights gained from the Baptist Health, Family Support Services, Girls Inc. of Jacksonville, and Performers Academy projects.
2018 FL-DSSG Internship program was funded by the Nonprofit Center for Northeast Florida and the University of North Florida. You can find more information about the 2018 DSSG program at http://dssg.unf.edu/2018program.html.
