Aaron Eline ’17 Competes in MedHacks at Johns Hopkins


This past weekend, senior Aaron Eline competed in MedHacks 2.0 at Johns Hopkins University, a 36-hour “hackathon” challenging innovators of all backgrounds to design solutions to the most pressing medical issues of our day using technology. A student-run event, out of 1800 applicants from across the country, approximately 300 college students, graduate students, and a small number of high school seniors were selected to participate.

Aaron’s team was tasked with creating a computer program to detect early signs of motor skill issues, specifically in children with cerebral palsy. At the end of the hackathon, teams presented their innovations to a judging panel, and winners were chosen based on criteria such as technical difficulty, creativity, and impact. Aaron’s team was selected as a top 10 finalist (out of 43 teams), and ultimately won the Innovation Award sponsored by Texas Medical Center. The team also received an open invitation to the TMC Entrepreneur’s Incubator, as well as other prizes.

Congratulations, Aaron!
