Blankets of Hope

SPREADING WARMTH, SAVING LIVES GRACE HSIA, CEO OF WARMILU

When Grace Hsia, a U-M engineering student, learned that 4 million low-birth weight babies die every year from hypothermia, she decided to do something about it. She started her own company, Warmilu LLC, to provide affordable infant warming blankets that could be used by hospitals in developing countries where they cannot afford incubators and heat lamps. The MsE program at U-M has helped her take this idea to the next level.
