Recently introduced to innovation and entrepreneurship via an interdisciplinary course between nursing and chemical engineering students, Jacqueline has fully embraced the possibilities for innovative progress within healthcare and hopes to continue developing a few innovative ideas of her own as she works toward graduation in December of 2016.
