Teams needed for Opioid Datathon

From: Virginia Tech Roanoke Center

The 2019 Virginia Tech Roanoke Center Opioid Datathon is a competition organized in collaboration with the Urgent Love Initiative of Southwest Virginia that will bring together bright, multi-discipline teams.

Teams will analyze data sets and turn them into useful information that will support local initiatives and policies that are vital to managing the opioid crisis at the local/regional level. Data stewards from health and other relevant agencies across the region will provide non-sensitive, de-identified data to this challenge for the teams to explore and use. Public and open data sets will also be provided for use. The call for teams is open now through Jan. 25.

There is a networking group on Facebook to help teams to form.
