NOVEMBER 2016 – The Corrie Health team, led by CIM Member and 3rd Year Bayview Resident Francoise Marvel, along with faculty mentor Seth Martin, recently received the award for Best Pitch at the Fueling the Growth with UberPITCH competition in Stamford, Connecticut. The team was one of 150 of the 300 applicants across the country to take a 15-minute Uber ride with investors to present their ideas. They were then named on of the 25 semifinalists from 5 major cities to travel to Connecticut, and became one of five companies to receive $15,000  in funding. An audience of over 150 investors, entrepreneurs and service providers voted theirs the best pitch, earning them an additional award of $1,500.  The team’s success proves that Corrie Health was seen as an innovative solution for heart attack recovery with an addressable economic problem of costly readmissions, a humanitarian gain of reducing avoidable harm/death post-heart attack and a brain trust of Johns Hopkins with Apple collaboration to drive the success.
