Event description

Description

The War on Diabetes Designathon (30 June – 1 July, and 8 July), organised by the Health Promotion Board (HPB), invites designers, healthcare professionals, developers, communication experts and other passionate citizens to join the war against Type 2 Diabetes. Come design tools and programmes to help our fellow citizens to take charge of their own health conditions.

Challenges

Challenge #1: Programmes to interventions for persons at high risks of developing Type 2 Diabetes

How might we empower pre-diabetics to take charge of their condition and halt the progression to Type 2 diabetes?

  • How can we better attract pre-diabetics to join intervention programmes?
  • How can we better support and incentivise individuals throughout an intervention programme, so they stay with the programme and reap maximum benefits from it?

Challenge #2: Increasing physical activity level among working adults

How can we encourage more working adults to be more physically active through exercise and sports?

  • How can we better measure and understand the types and intensity of physical activity in the population, to design and implement programmes that are more appealing and sustainable?
  • How can we enable working adults to be more intrinsically motivated to overcome personal and perceived barriers to do exercise or sports?

Why You Should Join

  • Learn: Learn more about preventive health programmes and opportunities.
  • Build: Co-create with other like-minded innovators who want to make a difference.
  • Pitch: Present to senior leaders of the healthcare community!
  • Get Rewarded: Stand to win from a prize pool of $13,500!
