Congratulations CLARION Case Competition Winners!

The first annual UIW CLARION Case Competition was a SUCCESS!  Three teams presented Friday evening, February 28th, to a large audience and four distinguished judges from the San Antonio healthcare community.  The competition was tough.  Each team had excellent recommendations to improve the delivery of care for patients with congestive heart failure, but only one team could win.  The winning team members were Jan Ramos from the School of Pharmacy and Amber Ferrand from the School of Physical Therapy. This team will now move onto the national competition at the University of Minnesota in April.  We wish them all the best as they go forward to represent UIW!
