A University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) programming team’s Health24 product that translates prescription drug information into any language so it is accessible to immigrant populations has won the Popular Choice Award at the America’s Datafest global competition.
“We are all very excited and proud to have won the Most Popular Award in Americas Datafest,” said project lead Josh Jones. “The positive feedback we received shows us that this is an application people think would be useful, and this definitely motivates us to invest more development time to improve it.”
The UAH team grabbed the most online votes to win the Popular Choice Award. The team previously won the America’s Datafest grand prize in regional competition at Auburn, earning it $1,000 from Alabama Media Group and the opportunity to compete for the global prize.
