Community engagement: Advancing children’s unmet medical needs

To better understand unmet needs in pediatric health, we engage directly with our community.

The Community Discovery Program encourages members of the public to describe challenges and experiences related to caring for children’s medical needs that could be improved with new technology. We evaluate opportunities for innovation and advance feasible, high-impact solutions within the University.
