Hadassah’s Department of Pediatrics Receives Donation of Laptops and Videos
Prof. Eitan Kerem, head of Hadassah's Pediatric Division, and Edna Pinchover, Principal of the Hadassah School in the Pediatrics Department
Dozens of laptops, videos, and CDs were donated to the Hadassah Medical Center's Department of Pediatrics for use by hospitalized children.
The laptops were contributed by a number of businesses, as well as private donors.
"I consider this kind of contribution to be an important one," said Prof. Eitan Kerem, head of Hadassah's Pediatrics Division. "Thanks to these laptops, many of our young patients will be able to pass their time learning new things and reading new things while being entertained. This is especially important for children who are bed-ridden and cannot participate in the Hadassah School or join in the other activities that Hadassah Hospital offers our hospitalized children."
Hadasit, Hadassah’s Technology Transfer Arm, Reviews
When the Hadassah University Medical Center’s physicians suggest a
solution to a medical problem which can lead to the development of a new
medicine or product, Hadasit, Hadassah’s technology transfer arm, explores its
feasibility and supports the promotion of those viable ideas with innovation
potential. Although 2012 has been “a year full of challenges for the life
science industry,” says Einat Zisman, Hadasit’s Chief Executive Officer,
Hadasit still signed 125 agreements for clinical trials, all to be done at
Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
