Mayo Clinic Health System and UW-Eau Claire are launching a new program to encourage creative solutions to critical health care questions. The Innovative Minds Partnering to Advance Curative Therapies (IMPACT) Program will invite teams of two to four undergraduate students to submit hypotheses to address a specific question. A prize of $1,000 per student will be awarded to the winning team at the 2019 IMPACT Symposium in Eau Claire in March 2019. Teams participating in the 2019 IMPACT Program will address the question: “What is the underlying cause of hypoplastic left heart syndrome?” Hypoplastic left heart syndrome is a rare and complex congenital health defect in which the left side of the heart is severely underdeveloped.
