You’re invited: 3rd annual Frankel Cardiovascular Center Innovation Challenge

October 31, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The entire Michigan Medicine community is invited to attend the 3rd annual Frankel Cardiovascular Center (FCVC) Clinical Value Innovation Challenge Pitch event tomorrow, Nov. 1, from 3-5 p.m. in the FCVC’s Danto Auditorium.

The purpose of the program is to create clinical value by empowering a community of innovators who will transform cardiovascular medicine.

Through support from the FCVC directors, a virtual innovation community of more than 1,000 members has been created. Community members have submitted 85 ideas over the last three years combined. Proposals have come from a variety of FCVC community members including physicians, nurses, nutritionists, therapists and patients.

At the event, a panel of expert external judges will hear five finalist teams pitch their proposals and will select a grand prize winner. The grand prize winning team will receive up to $100,000 in funding to move their project forward and continuous support from the innovation team. In addition, through a generous gift from the Aikens Family Fund, the FCVC is creating an educational program to support innovative ideas generated by FCVC members through education, mentorship and operational support.

Please join this fun and exciting afternoon event. Refreshments will be served beginning at 2:30 p.m.

The FCVC would like to thank the entire community for ongoing engagement and support!
