UM Med students Carlos Oliu and Sharon Wolfson have discovered that a little creativity can go a long-way towards improving the cost and availability of developing-world healthcare. Their program Innovaid is a new student organization at the UM Miller School of Medicine devoted to identifying and solving developing-world medical problems through the creative use of technology.
Carlos Oliu is a medical student, UM biomedical engineering graduate, and lifelong tinkerer, interested in adapting technology to new and interesting uses. Fellow UM medical student Sharon Wolfson also holds a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering, from Boston University, where she participated in Global Health Design coursework. She has traveled to Nicaragua, where she provided healthcare to over a thousand patients alongside UM classmates and faculty. Together, Carlos and Sharon founded InnovAid to bridge their passions for innovation and providing healthcare where it is desperately needed.
