Carilion Clinic pitched health care innovations to international students competing in this year’s Virginia Tech Global Entrepreneur Partnership.
Students from a dozen countries stopped by the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine on Friday to hear about the role that entrepreneurs play in developing technology and products to improve health care.
