On March 25-27, the College of Public Health hosted a 48-hour, Virtual COVID-19 Hackathon with the aim of bringing together public health students of all degree levels and backgrounds in a coordinated effort to provide meaningful, evidence-based public health information for Georgia communities.

Over 90 students participated in the event, and together, they produced over 30 resources in the form of infographics, videos, lesson plans, data visualizations, policy memos and more, for the purpose of education and public awareness of essential information.

These resources are available to all local, community partners across the state. Click on a category below to view free resources that you may use on social media, disseminate to your communities, and share with any stakeholders that might benefit from information related to COVID19 and essential resources during this time.

All resources are publicly available, however, we ask that you credit the students who created the resource and the UGA College of Public Health. Student information can be found alongside the resource links.
