On Friday, November 10, Seton Hall students Tea Scott and Anthony Barley won 3rd place and a prize of $1,000 in the Horizon Blue Cross of New Jersey Health Care Transformation Challenge. For young adults, navigating the health care system can be complex and confusing. The contest challenged undergraduate students to create new marketing and technology ideas to encourage their peers to take an active role in their health care.
Tea and Anthony, both participants of the Seton Hall's Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), created an easy-to-use, entertaining, and interactive app, called 123 Health to help millennials better understand the healthcare system. The team presented their app at the Horizon Headquarters in Newark to an expert panel of N.J. healthcare leaders and companies.
The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) at Seton Hall University was established in 1968 to provide academic excellence, leadership initiatives, and international perspectives to prepare students from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to compete and succeed in a global society. Teresitia Walters, EOP Student Developmental Specialist, is "extremely proud of these students and humbled to be part of such a unique opportunity to make an impact on society."
