Community Involvement

We are committed to using our skills and expertise for the benefit of health and the environment.  As members of the scientific community and neighbors, this is a matter of professional and personal responsibility.  This means active involvement in the institutions, organizations, and publications that shape scientific understanding, along with giving time and energy to organizations that serve our communities and society at large.  Whether it be serving on advisory boards or providing food to those in need, performing pro bono project work or science experiments at area elementary schools, we want our efforts to contribute to the greater good.  The following list is a sample of some of the volunteer positions that our employees currently hold or have held in the past:
