Two Breast Pump Hackathons and Counting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What do breast pumps have to do with racial inequity? Can hackathons hack policy and systems and products and pumps? The 2nd MIT Make the Breast Pump Not Suck Hackathon is in April 2018 and this time focused on equity in postpartum health and innovation. The organizers of the event, along with members of several community innovation teams from around the country, will reflect on our experiences of the process, the event, and lessons learned for organizing equity-focused design sprints.
