2016 Naloxone App Competition: Code-a-Thon Agenda

This competition will be conducted in two phases. Phase 1 will consist of a code-a-thon on October 19-20, 2016. at the FDA campus in Silver Spring, Maryland. The purpose of the code-a-thon is for registered entrants to develop concepts and initial prototypes for an app that alerts carriers of naloxone to a nearby opioid overdose.

Entrants are encouraged, but not required, to participate in the code-a-thon. Entrants will receive an email confirming registration and participation in the code-a-thon, if applicable.

The code-a-thon event space is limited to the first 50 individuals who indicate interest in on-site participation during the registration process. There will be a virtual component to the code-a-thon for the first 100 individuals who indicate interest in remote participation during the registration process. At the code-a-thon, federal agency subject matter experts will provide background information to entrants on topics including, but not limited to the opioid epidemic, public health, and mobile medical applications and medical device development.
