Helping Others Fight Depression Through Increased Treatment Opportunities

Andrei Isac is a Computer Science Student from Romania. He and his partners recently competed in the 2017 finals of the Imagine Cup, an innovation and technology competition hosted by Microsoft. His project, deTpression, is a tool that aids doctors in the treatment of depression by capturing remote observations.

Andrei believes that students in the field of technology have both an increased opportunity and a responsibility to do something to help others. According to Andrei, eighty percent of people that suffer from depression cannot afford treatment. DeTpression makes treatment more affordable by allowing doctors to observe and remotely recommend treatment.
