Over 3 million women in the U.S. can't afford healthcare because they lack health insurance or fall under an insurance coverage gap.

What it does

HerCare is a website that allows women with low income to find free services for women's healthcare, including clinics and events.

How I built it

On the front end, we used a combination of React, jQuery, Google API, Yelp API, and SFGov's OpenData to ensure the website display the information in real time. At the back end, Node-Red is used which is a visual wiring tool based on node.js. As an appendix, a submitted appointment is registered into kintone via AWS.

Challenges I ran into

API, tech coding

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We present you an Alexa Skill that helps you find the nearest clinics that provide free service for you.

What's next for HerCare
