FUNDING INNOVATION & DISCOVERY

Our successful track record as an agile, impactful team is only possible with the support of our donors and community partners that enable us to respond quickly to new research opportunities. To that end, our 2017 Heartbeat Gala proceeds will go to our Innovation Fund, which directly supports MHIF Investigator Initiated Research (IIR). IIR involves:

  • Physicians identifying new research questions from trends they see in their clinical practice.
  • Mobilizing research teams and clinical research interns to study the data and propose solutions.
  • Communicating findings to improve clinical practice.
