SFHS with SCU Presents

Innovations in Dementia Care (I2DC)

Pitchfest & Celebration

November 30, 2022

Innovation in Demetia Care

Join us for our first Innovations in Dementia Care (I2DC) Pitchfest & Celebration. Seventeen students have been working in teams to identify a challenge in dementia care - either for the person with dementia or the caregiver - in order to create and prototype their own solution. On November 30th, our four teams of Lancers across all grade levels will come together to pitch their ideas and showcase the work they have done in this ten-week engagement with Santa Clara University's Healthcare Innovation and Design Program. At least one project will be selected to move forward for the next two years, converting their pitch from prototype to product.
