Six winners were named in a pitch competition for medical devices designed to improve care in the neonatal intensive care unit at the seventh annual Pediatric Device Innovation Symposium, hosted by Washington, D.C.-based Children’s National Hospital.

Each winner of the “Make Your Medical Device Pitch for Kids!” competition received $25,000 and the chance to join the National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation’s new accelerator program. The event was sponsored by the FDA-funded consortium, which is led by Children’s National’s Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation and the University of Maryland’s engineering school.
