Each year, the Center for Healthcare Delivery Science and Innovation (HDSI) supports internal projects through our Innovations Grant Program, funding up to $50,000 for each one-year project. On May 8th, HDSI brought together University of Chicago Medicine operational leaders and faculty for our 7th Annual Innovations Grant Review meeting – this time using Zoom. Nine thoughtful and impactful grant submissions were received this year for which we are most grateful, particularly given the focus on preparing for and addressing COVID-19.
HDSI is excited to announce that the Innovation Grant was awarded to Celeste Thomas, MD, MS, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Associate Director of the Kovler Diabetes Center, and Medical Director of Diabetes Quality. Dr. Thomas and her team were awarded for their project: Using Technology to Address Disparities and Promote Healthcare Equity in Type 1 Diabetes.
