Dr. Dennis DiValentino is a family physician in Hamilton, ON. In 2017, he received a Joule Innovation grant for his social innovation, Ramcare, to help provide care to marginalized individuals using mobile tele-medical units. Ramcare represents a potentially transformative solution for marginalized populations encountering serious mental illnesses, addiction issues and to elderly patients who are immobile and do not have a caregiver at home.
