Description

In celebration of Women’s History Month, meet Rachel Simon-Lee and Dr. Jennifer Silva, who are making history TODAY!

Rachel Simon-Lee leveraged her undergraduate degree, background and expertise in media production, and knowledge of cardiac surgeries to engage some of the top pediatric cardiothoracic surgeons in the country and create her new venture, Heartwork Videos. Heartwork Videos is a surgical training company that helps improve surgical training and patient outcomes with surgical video production and analysis. These videos inform, educate and reinforce surgical techniques for all medical professionals.

Dr. Jennifer Silva is a practicing pediatric cardiologist at Washington University/St. Louis Children’s Hospital and the co-founder of SentiAR, Inc. SentiAR is a digital health software device company developing the first 3D visualization platform using real-time holography of the patient’s anatomy and catheter location, with a goal of providing the clinician and patient a faster, safer delivery of care. Jennifer and her team are SBIR Fast Track awardees and are collaborating with industry partners including Abbott and Microsoft. SentiAR recently was awarded a $2.3 Million grant from the National Institutes for Health to advance augmented reality cardiac hologram research.

Join us for an informal conversation about their work, education and path to entrepreneurship. Event put on by
BioSTL Inclusion Intiative, and sponsored by JP Morgan Chase Foundation.
