The AHA has extended the deadline to May 31 for organizations to submit applications for its 2019 Innovation Challenge. The original deadline was today. The challenge is looking for new ways to apply technology to address the social determinants of health. The top three proposals will receive $100,000, $25,000 and $15,000, respectively, to help bring their ideas to life. Award recipients will be announced at the AHA Leadership Summit in San Diego July 25-27. For more information and to apply, visit the AHA webpage
