Mini-Grants Recap: Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit

Students reflect on the opportunities provided to them by the Rockefeller Center's Mini-Grants program through this ongoing series. The Mini-Grants program funds registration fees for students attending conferences relevant to the Rockefeller Center's mission as well as the costs of bringing speakers to the Dartmouth campus.

Heading into the Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit in early November, I didn’t fully know what to expect. I stepped in with only a desire to learn. Throughout the course of the summit, I had the opportunity to speak with numerous leaders in the digital health space and hear from a sampling of panelists and speakers that spanned the provider, patient, and payor landscape. It was a riveting day of big ideas and immense possibility. With the possibility of helping to re-imagine the patient- physician relationship and the boundaries of the clinic, digital health has seized the attention of investors, regulators, and health system leaders alike.

Recap: Excel Workshop with Mike Bush '11 and Emily Niehaus '12

This October, the Rockefeller Center held a workshop on developing skills for Microsoft Excel. It was led by two Dartmouth alumni.

This term's workshop on Microsoft Excel was a huge hit on campus with a record number of sign ups. The four hour workshop, led by Mike Bush '11 and Emily Niehaus '12, promised to teach the comprehensive set of excel skills that any student or professional would need to succeed in school and in the workplace. Attended by students of all class years, graduate students, and staff, the event started promptly at 11 am in Carson Hall. Bush and Niehaus, associates of the strategy consultant firm Parthenon Group, began the workshop by establishing a foundation of basic excel techniques. Their primary focus was shortcuts, basically teaching students how to get things done in Excel in the quickest way possible. The goal was for students to discontinue the use of the mouse and save time by only using the keys.
