Six Ohio children’s hospitals receive $2 million from state for collaborative research project

Following through on a comment he made during a tour of Nationwide Children’s Hospital last year, Ohio Governor John Kasich announced a $2 million award for six children’s hospitals across the state to collaborate on two research projects.

Kasich spoke to the press in the Statehouse, flanked by leaders from Nationwide Children’s, Cincinnati Children’s, Akron Children’s, ProMedica Toledo Children’s, Dayton Children’s and Cleveland’s Rainbow Babies & Children’s hospitals.

The funding for pediatric research is a first for the State of Ohio.
