You are invited to the first OLPC Health Jam in Seattle, WA!

One Laptop per Child will be holding an open Health Jam and hackathon 
from Friday April 18 through Sunday April 20. The three-day event will be 
hosted on the University of Washington campus.

The focus of this event is to accelerate development on Health-related
OLPC initiatives - hardware, software, and content - as well as testing
the existing projects with local health workers. 

To register or to view more information, including how you or your group 
can participate, see http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Health_Jam. We
hope to see you there!

About OLPC

One Laptop per Child (OLPC) is a non-profit organization created to 
design, manufacture, and distribute laptops that are sufficiently 
inexpensive to provide every child in the world access to knowledge 
and modern forms of education. The rugged, Linux-based, 
mesh-networking-enabled, and power-efficient laptops have begun to be 
deployed to children by schools across the world on the basis of one 
laptop per child. OLPC is based on constructionist theories of learning 
pioneered by Seymour Papert and later Alan Kay, as well as the 
principles expressed in Nicholas Negroponte's Being Digital.

About OLPC Health

The OLPC Health effort is an interdisciplinary group working on public-health related
projects associated with the XO, including software, hardware, and content. 
Health projects can be a local grassroots undertaking, a student group project,
a pilot implementation, a global community creation-sprint weekend - we cut 
across geographic, disciplinary, and institutional boundaries to help all 
health-related OLPC work move forward. Some related links
