VIENNA, VIRGINIA, FEBRUARY 4, 2015 – MicroHealth has announced its first “Future of Health” competition. Contestants will create a blog entry detailing their view on what healthcare will be like 50 years from now. The contest offers an array of prizes, including an iPad Mini, Beats Solo2 Headphones, and a Kindle Fire; additionally, MicroHealth presents another unique incentive to the contest – paid internships for all contest winners.

“I am so excited to see the creative concepts these students envision. Where do they see genomics? Will a cancer cure be in sight? Will wearable computers capture more than just vitals or fitness? I don’t know, but I would like to see where the future of our nation sees health in 50 years,” said Frank Tucker, CEO of MicroHealth.

Three “grand prizes” will be offered to the top submissions and will also be posted to MicroHealth’s blog, which garners 30,000 hits monthly. The contest is open to all legal US residents that are 18 years old and over and enrolled in an accredited university or college or have high school senior status. Submissions that are deemed post-worthy also have the chance to be posted to the blog alongside with contest winners. In response to whether or not this contest will become a yearly tradition for MicroHealth, Tucker stated: “I would absolutely love to bring this contest back again. It offers a great way to see how people think and to bring these innovative thinkers into our family here at MicroHealth.”

“Future of Health” will be held from January 21, 2015 through May 5, 2015. More information, including details on how to enter, is available at https://www.microhealthllc.com/mhfutureofhealth/.
