Nexus Maximus takes place at Jefferson University once a year, each time with a different theme. Last year, our Aalto participants were working with local students to tackle problems related to displaced populations and refugees; this year, the challenge is Improving Lives through Healthy Communities.

Participating students will be assigned to teams consisting of 4-6 students from different disciplines. Each team will be assigned a community in Philadelphia, and will be challenged with developing innovation to improve the health of that local community.

Potential Areas of Exploration:

  • Improving health care access
  • Healthy community design
  • New policies or business models to deliver sustainable value to the community.
  • Community diversity

This is an opportunity to work with and learn from faculty, students, and industry partners abroad, as well as a great chance to apply your learning in a new context. To read more about the program, visit http://www.nexusmaximus.com.
