Eisai was proud to once again sponsor the Flare ‘Innovation in Healthcare’ award, won this year by Aaron Ellis-Montoya with his project ‘United Minds’.
Flare is the University of Hertfordshire’s competition to help students and alumni launch new businesses or develop an innovative idea. It offers budding entrepreneurs support and training in areas such as writing a business proposal and offers prize money to help bring their ideas to life.
Stemming from Aaron’s own experience, ‘United Minds’ focuses on mental health and began by helping University of Hertfordshire law students by offering ‘Peer to Ear’ sessions. Now, it helps educate and support people of all ages dealing with mental health issues.
