Northwell Health's version of 'Shark Tank' awards $1M to bring medical innovations to market

In a competition styled after the reality television show “Shark Tank,” Northwell Health awarded a total of $1 million to two teams of staff researchers — one working on a better way to diagnose a painful condition afflicting one in 10 women, and the other seeking to help doctors and nurses spend less time with computers and more with patients. The winners for first place --  Dr. Peter Gregersen and Christine Metz -- and second --  Drs. Vishwanath Anantraman and Michael Oppenheim -- were announced at a news conference Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at the health system's New Hyde Park headquarters. (Credit: Northwell Health)
