Nurse and ASU graduate student taps university resources to launch health care idea

I’m Ramona Ramadas, and I’m in the Masters of Healthcare Innovation program My background was in nursing and software development and so I felt that those experiences in community health and working in software gave me a lot of incredible ideas but I didn’t really have a great framework for bringing them to life. So when I was looking for programs to take my career to the next level, I loved MHI’s program, I loved the seven pillars of innovation and I felt like it was a natural fit for me. Today we’re here at Entrepreneurship and Innovation for the Venture Devils program pitches and I’ve been able to tap into a couple of different funding sources through that program. New Trails Navigators is a peer-health navigation program that’s designed to work for our community’s most vulnerable populations. I feel that nurses, in terms of our training, and the way that we think about patients and making patients life and experience better we’re natural innovators. We are looking for ways to get to that end result. Tap into the network at ASU .. I’m online doing my program so I’m based out of Washington state I have developed strong relationships and it is completely doable even if ..you are not on-campus so don’t be shy about reaching out to that network, and.. building relationships with your fellow students and… with the instructors and leaders in the program because,.. it’s a really, really great opportunity to take your ideas and your career further.
