Founded in 2015 by Jacob Knorr, CEAS, '17, EnableUC promotes 3-D printing technology as a way to bridge the gap between engineering and medicine.
PBS NewsHour air a segment on Sept. 3 about Ella, her family and the effect EnableUC has had on their lives.
"I don’t think they totally get how much of an impact it made on our family and Ella," Ella's mother Heather Morton told PBS. "The first thing that she’s always said when she puts it on, she’s like, 'Look, I have two hands now, mommy, just like my sisters. And I can hold both Barbies. And I can play. And I can do all the same things as my sisters do.' I like to think that we have never made her feel different, but this just makes it feel more normal."
The story was produced by Mary Williams, a Gwen Ifill Legacy fellow from Cincinnati's Hughes STEM High School and now a freshman at UC.
