UT Austin Graduate Joins CMN Hospitals Innovation Team as Intern!


Natalie Weston has held a few titles in the past year – Texas THON President, 2017 Miracle Network Dance Marathon Distinguished Leader, 2017 CMN Hospitals IGNITE Challenge Winner – and now CMN Hospitals’ Innovation Intern.

Earlier this year, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals hosted it’s first ever innovation case competition, The IGNITE Challenge. Natalie Weston was on a team of three students from the University of Texas at Austin who competed and won the competition. She was chosen to represent her team and their winning idea as an intern on our Innovation Team. The first day of her internship was Tuesday, September 5th and she’s already proven to be a valuable asset to the team! Her tasks will include helping the team with a new test program, Superhero U, as well as concept screening her winning idea, Hometown Heroes.
