Dear <<First Name>>,

As one year comes to a close, a new one begins – and we are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2019 cohort of DigitalHealth.London’s innovative NHS Digital Pioneer Fellowship. Applications close on 18 January 2019; please spread the word to NHS colleagues who may be interested in applying.
The current Digital Pioneer Fellows will graduate on 28 February 2019. Please join us for a day of recognition and networking at the Digital Pioneer Fellowship Showcase, where we will also be welcoming the new cohort. Speakers and special guests will be announced in the new year - keep an eye on our social media and news page.
This newsletter features two blogs on digital technologies in relation to child healthcare written by current Fellows, as well as news of a significant success for an alumnus of the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme: Changing Health has secured £3 million in new funding to promote healthier lifestyles with artificial intelligence.
Finally, on 10 December, NICE published the new Evidence Standards Framework for Digital Health Technologies, developed in partnership with a working group that included DigitalHealth.London. 
Have a wonderful break, and see you in 2019!
- The DigitalHealth.London team
