About

It is a non-profit organization and public/private partnership focused on facilitating collaboration between academia, providers, corporates, and government entities to advance healthcare innovation across North and South Carolina. The intent is to share resources between our members to best support health innovators across the region.

Healthcare Innovation

Challenges
