Innovation Grant Award

Residents David Do and Josh Vanderwerf were accepted into the 2016 Innovation Accelerator Program at the Penn Center for Health Care Innovation. Both residents are also part of the Leadership in Health Care Quality residency track and as part of their Capstone project lead a multidisciplinary team to improve nutrition in critically-ill patients. With the help of their mentor, Dr. John Chandler, they are piloting a technology-enabled solution in the Neurointensive Care Unit.

The Innovator Accelerator Program accepts five teams per year, each of which receive seed funding, mentorship, and institutional support to help design and build custom solutions to clinical problems.
