Brad Phelan and Claire Aldridge discussing the future of biotech.

Enable thought leadership

We believe in empowering our community to take an active role around health’s most pressing issues.

From our signature Leading the Conversation on Health series to our monthly e-newsletter, we value the opportunity to convene around big ideas and catalyze important discussions. We seek to deliver accessible content helping you make well-informed health decisions for you and your family.

Inspire a great citizenship

We believe in the lasting impacts of inspiring a great citizenship to greater deeds.

Our founder, Dr. Edward H. Cary, once said that recognition of our connection with one another is “the first step in cultivating what may be termed a desirable soul for the city, which is the quickening of the city.” As our region continues to grow and evolve, this duty remains.

Achieve sustainable funding

We believe that progress in medicine requires us to broaden and deepen sustainable funding for the mission ahead.

With gratitude for the generous hearts who have inspired progress for the past eight decades, we stand with resolve to meet the greatest health challenges of today. We seek to assure impact and reach that is maintained no matter what tomorrow brings.
