Life Science Cares
A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
There are many issues impacting our great country, but none are more fundamental than the alarming (and increasing) difference between rich and poor. The so-called income gap has been cited as a root cause for many of the critical issues facing our society. Crime, racism, the education achievement gap, unaffordable health care, unemployment, and even basic human rights, are all issues that threaten our societal wellbeing.
Clearly, we increasingly live in a society of “haves “and “have nots”. Our knowledge economy, driven by the technology, financial services, higher education, and life science sectors, has fueled a financial boom from which many of us, have benefited greatly.
Unfortunately, those who have not had the good fortune to ride this wave of growth are finding it increasingly hard to keep up. The cost of housing, food, child-care, good education, health care, and education, are all growing at a pace that exceeds the growth in income for most people.
Even more troubling, is the insidious, self-fulfilling nature of this problem. The tools that are needed to break the cycle of poverty (good education, childhood development opportunities, career advancement, etc.) are becoming ever more exclusive, available predominately to only those who already have means.
I created Life Science Cares as a way to channel the intellect and passion of employees of the life science sector to close the gap in their work to help humanity. I hope you will join us in the effort!
