San Diego County, along with three other communities around the nation, will host a mobile app development challenge as part of an effort led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:
The Million Hearts Risk Challenge invites developers to create a mobile app that will help people take a heart health risk assessment, find places to check their blood pressure and cholesterol and use the results to improve their heart health.
