"Sponsoring the Walk to Remember TM is an example of the cornerstone of our business' mission – to directly engage patients in biomedical research and to provide transparency in the process. Non-profit curated events are of particular interest to us, because it provides the Company with the unique opportunity to communicate our mission directly to patients and their families, face-to-face, as opposed to exclusively employing the social web. We're excited to sponsor this event and many more in the near future." – Carlyn Crisostomo, Vice President, Clinical Strategy & Operations.
