PBS NewsHour Profiles Projects Competing In Saving Lives At Birth Challenge

The research profiled includes chewing gum to prevent gum disease among pregnant women, an innovative storage device for antiretroviral drugs administered to an infant to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission, a mobile heart-monitoring unit, an alternative to forceps used in delivery, and stamp-sized diagnostics (Miller, 8/1).
