Pediatric med device campaign goes live

The medical device market for children has a higher demand than supply, so the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation has announced an eight-week online "idea campaign" to encourage innovations and collaborations to meet the growing medical needs of children. The inspiration behind this unique forum comes from the joint Kauffman Foundation and Lucile Packard Foundation's Pediatric Medical Device Innovation fellowship team of John Avi Roop and surgical resident Kevin Chao, MD. The goal is to harness the creativity and collaboration of groups of people, and to shorten the time it takes to get solutions to market. Report
