Innovation in Action's five-month, university-wide entrepreneurship challenge concluded in March. Student teams focus on broad topics in public health and education to address real-world problems and to learn more about social innovation in an experiential-learning framework. This year's public health competition first-prize winner was Canopy, a web-based application that facilitates "the conversations about the end of life that we aren't having but maybe should be." The simple app walks users through questions and answers they might need someday to help clarify their wishes with the people they love. Canopy was developed by students Ann Duong of the School of Information and SPH, Brandon Keelean of the Stamps School of Art and Design, and Elisabeth Michel of SPH.
