NIH is offering up to $8 million in cash prizes to accelerate development of technologies to improve maternal health outcomes for those who live in areas lacking access to maternity care. The Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics Technology (RADx® Tech) for Maternal Health Challenge prioritizes home-based or point-of-care diagnostic devices, wearables, and other remote sensing technologies to improve postpartum health care in these regions. The postpartum period is defined as the first year after giving birth or the end of a pregnancy, and it accounts for a large proportion of maternal deaths in the United States.
This webinar will provide technical information on eligibility, how to participate, and other questions.
Individuals who need any other reasonable accommodations to participate in this activity should contact email@example.com or 617-643-3800 at least 5 days in advance.
