PharmD student Richard Lee’s team, EpiForAll, took home the $15,000 Hollomon Family grand prize at the Hollomon Health Innovation Challenge  (HIC) hosted by UW Foster School’s Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship. The HIC featured 20 student teams seeking to address problems in health, wellness, and healthcare through innovation. This was EpiForAll’s second year of competing with their affordable emergency epinephrine auto injector that utilizes existing ampules.  “I really need to thank UWSOP Associate Professor Tom Hazlet. Without him, I wouldn’t be here today since the value I bring to the team is more than just the clinical pharmacy aspects but also rests upon the lessons I learned from his Biomedical Regulatory Affairs Certificate Program and Clinical Trials Certificate Program. These classes provided a strong foundation to help our team plan out our strategy for seeking FDA approval which is part of our next steps.”
