Austin-based healthcare communications agency Crosswind Media & Public Relations has teamed up with Massachusetts Institute of Technology student group Hacking Medicine program to promote that organization’s “HackMed Health House,” a three-day workshop focused on the intersection of chronic illness and technology solutions.

That event will take place during the 23rd Annual SXSW Interactive Festival, which begins today in Austin.

During the three-day event, industry experts and entrepreneurs will be able to interact with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals to discuss issues and develop solutions for those suffering from chronic health conditions. Participants on Monday, March 14 will have the opportunity to pitch their heath start-up to venture capitalists and investors in a “Shark Tank” style session.
