“We are so proud of what these Honors Fung Fellows have accomplished, including their perseverance and commitment to improving health outcomes.” — Jennifer Mangold, Fung Fellowship Director

“It’s never easy to pivot on product design and delivery — let alone during a pandemic — and the Shotline team did an amazing job working through obstacles together to address a very real and acute market need. From conducting market research, to navigating differing points of view, they astutely assessed their options, prioritizing their customers’ needs. It’s been exciting to see them evolve, and I’m quite excited for what’s to come both for Shotline and the team!” — Amanda Brief, Shotline Mentor and MEng ’15 (IEOR)
