HALO founder receives Cribs for Kids award
May 14, 2015,
Bill Schmid, founder of HALO Innovations, was recently awarded the 2015 “Making a Difference” National Leadership Award presented by Cribs For Kids to recognize his ongoing role in safe sleep education.
Schmid and his wife, Cathy, lost their daughter, Haley, to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) in 1991. As a result of their personal tragedy, he began an exhaustive review of the latest medical research available on SIDS. Based on input from leading SIDS researchers, Schmid founded HALO Innovations with the mission to reduce the number of infant deaths due to SIDS.
Cribs for Kids is an organization dedicated to educating parents about safe sleep and providing the necessary tools to create a safe sleep space for baby.
