Houston County Student Develops New Medical Assistance App

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Houston county student is headed to the White House after winning a Congressional App Challenge.


Houston County High School Student, Rumi Lee placed first in the eighth congressional district for her app. She is developing a first aid medical assistance app designed for Kindergarten through 12-grade students on proper interventions.

“This was actually a project that I did a few years ago, that I was not able to fully satisfy myself on. I told myself I got to do so much more with this. Why did I stop here for the deadline? So I did more research, and I resurface back to this project and I was able to redesign everything,” says Lee.

The “Aid Me” app gives users the proper steps to take for common based emergencies and creates a virtual first aid kit.

“When the user first opens the app they will click begin then they will be guided by two pages actually. The first page includes calling call 911 if you haven’t already done so, then the second page gives you common first add scenarios,” says Lee.

The “Aid Me” app is not available for download. However, Lee plans to keep updating the app in hopes for it to become available to the public.

“I’m still trying to play around with what the users may want, what they don’t need and what they need to be aware of,” says Lee.

Lee heads to Washington DC this spring for a House of Code event.
