Vote Today for USA Medical Student in AMA Healthier Nation Innovation Challenge

Peter Soh, a rising fourth-year medical student at the University of South Alabama, is competing in the 2016 American Medical Association (AMA) Healthier Nation Innovation Challenge. The challenge supports physician-led innovation by empowering physicians, residents and medical students to bring their ideas to practice.

Applicant teams submit an idea, product or solution to answer an AMA Healthier Nation Challenge question that represents a significant innovation to the practice of 21st century medicine.

Soh and his teammate Dr. Safina Hafeez, who earned her medical degree from Odessa State Medical University in Odessa, Ukraine, designed a mobile application for patients to securely send a picture of skin lesions or other pertinent clinical data to their primary care physician. The deadline for votes is Friday, May 20, 2016, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.

The challenge provides more than $50,000 in grants to the top three teams. In addition to grants, winners of the challenge receive access to contributing businesses and innovators. The top five teams will be invited to the AMA Healthier Nation Innovation Challenge event in Chicago to present their ideas to a live audience and panel of judges. The finalist of the challenge will be decided on June 11, 2016.
