Button Huggie Wins Shark Tank Award at National Conference

CU Department of Surgery

We were incredibly fortunate to have been able to represent Ezalife and the University of Colorado by participating in NASPGHAN's annual mini shark tank competition in Orlando, Florida, and we are even more excited to have won first place! We are incredibly appreciative of the NASPGHAN organization and the work they put in to improve research, education, and advocacy for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition in health and disease.

When Frustration Leads to a Better Way

Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation

Special thanks to the Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation for writing this in-depth article that summarizes our origin story,  explains in detail the complications that arise from the traditional method of securing gastrostomy buttons, highlights why the Button Huggie is a superior securement method for g-buttons, and mentions one of the many awards that we've been fortunate enough to accept due to our careful design of the Button Huggie.
