PICU takes on OSU in Goal Line Challenge

November 22, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

As football fans around the country gear up for the big Michigan vs. Ohio State game this weekend, another rivalry is heating up between the two schools.  The U-M C.S. Mott Children's Hospital pediatric intensive care unit is squaring off against Ohio State and the Nationwide Children's Hospital pediatric critical care team in the Goal Line Challenge, a campaign to raise vital funds for the respective programs.

The U-M PICU provides advanced care for infants, children and young adults with a wide variety of life-threatening issues, such as severe infections, breathing difficulties, traumatic injuries and recovery from major surgery.

Despite being rivals on the football field, researchers at OSU/Nationwide Children’s and U-M/C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital have been strong partners in the charge to improve care for children who are critically ill. Help us help them by supporting innovative critical care research initiatives aimed at discovering new treatments, providing the highest quality care and teaching the next generation of critical care providers.

Donations will be used at each respective program regardless of the outcome on the gridiron.
