    Dear Trojan Family,

    In the spirit of the National Cancer Moonshot, The Kuhn Lab at USC is calling upon all Trojans to join to HackForHealth. Together we will spend a weekend building meaningful solutions to the problems that cancer patients and researchers face everyday. All are welcome, regardless of medical background or technical expertise.
    HackForHealth is a cancer-focused hackathon organized by the diverse team of researchers, physicians, students, and patients behind CancerBase -” a digital tool for cancer patients to securely track and share their medical data, powering research into the progression and treatment of cancer. We hope that you can join us from April 7-9 to interact with members of the cancer community and hack together solutions to help them, whether it be an app, website, gadget, or sketch. Projects will be judged by representatives from the National Cancer Institute. The prizes include cash and internship opportunities.

    Register today and let\'s beat cancer together!
