1 min read

A team composed of undergraduate students from Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, and Central Connecticut State University is among 10 U.S.-based software design team finalists for the 2011 Imagine Cup.

Dubbed TTHV, the group is composed of Alexander Ryu, University of Pennsylvania; Annemarie Ryu ’13 and Brandon Liu ’14, both of Harvard College; and David Amenta, Central Connecticut State University.

For the Microsoft-sponsored student technology competition, the students developed Remindavax, a health care solution that improves patient attendance for maternal and child health care as well as helping community health workers organize their village visits to ensure patients who cannot access the health centers get needed care.

S.V. Subramanian, Associate Professor of Society, Human Development and Health; Anuraj H. Shankar, Senior Research Scientist; and Wafaie W. Fawzi, Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology are serving as mentors. All are based at the Harvard School of Public Health.

By being among the U.S. finalists for the Imagine Cup 2011, TTHV will have the chance to go on to represent the United States in the global competition in New York City from July 8-13, 2011.
