Join us for the next info session on the Health Equity Innovation Challenge on February 16 via Zoom.

We are excited is excited to offer this unique opportunity for businesses with social and technological innovations to gain funding and support for their idea.

If you are an innovator interested in social drivers of inequity in healthcare like transportation, economic mobility, affordable housing, nutrition, food deserts, education, and systemic cultural barriers, then we invite you to apply and learn more about the benefits offered by the program.

The Health Equity Innovation Challenge is being administered by the Flywheel Foundation with Atrium Health serving as the title sponsor. The Challenge is a business idea competition seeking solutions to problems causing disparities in healthcare outcomes that Atrium Health, the collaborating organizations, sponsors, and the communities they serve deeply care about.

The challenge will run for three years and is expected to generate a portfolio of 20-30 companies, both for-profit and non-profit.
