Share Your Story and Inspire Others — The Cancer Care Video Challenge
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), in conjunction with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites cancer patients, survivors, and their families and friends to participate in the Cancer Care Video Challenge. To participate, submit an original and creative video sharing a story about using technology to achieve a goal related to cancer care. There are a variety of consumer eHealth tools and applications that can be used to navigate the various aspects of living with or transitioning from cancer treatment to survivorship—mobile apps, informational web sites, devices, online health communities, etc.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the best videos and winning videos may appear on HealthIT.gov. Participants are encouraged to share their video with friends and family since the number of views is one of several criteria for winning (#HealthIT4Cancer)! The video contest is one of many efforts at ONC to generate personal stories that will motivate and inspire others to use health IT and consumer eHealth tools to achieve better health.
