J. M. Hartfiel Healthcare Wins $50,000 Development Grant from DOD.
J. M. Hartfiel Healthcare is one of seven finalists who each won a $50,000 grant from the DOD Supply Base And Diversification Program. The grant will be administered through the Ohio State University. The University's CDME will provide technical support including the design and production of manufacturing molds. The award included a 1-year contract for services from a commercialization specialty company worth $5,000. The commercialization company will help J. M. Hartfiel Healthcare pitch for government contracts and get found by government tech scouts. The first pitch is next week - we'll be presenting to representatives from US Central Command, Office of the Undersecretary of Defense, Indo-Pacific Command, and more. We would be honored if the Respiratory Shield becomes part of the nation's toolkit in the fight against COVID and other infectious diseases! Stay tuned for more details.
