What challenges or opportunities are you trying to address within the problem? (200 characters or less)

Finding out I have severe osteoporosis in November and having a fall in January and breaking my left femur. Complications required 3 1/2 months hospitalization. Needing Forteo but unable to pay for it

If you were to become a Top Idea, would you want to actively participate in piloting your idea?

  • I want my idea piloted, but I’d prefer not to be involved in the pilot and prefer that the health system adopts my idea for piloting with assistance from the Challenge partner
