Innovative device to remotely monitor student-athletes’ health amid the pandemic

Jun 29, 2020

With student-athletes returning to campus, the University is adding “tele-vigilance” to its multifaceted approach for containing the coronavirus. As the father of a young daughter with frequent ear infections, Dedi Gilad spent too many hours in a clinic waiting to see the child’s doctor, fretting about their time away from school and work, and dreaming of a better way to diagnose and treat common ailments.
