Over the past several months, many changes have taken place at the Greater Gift Initiative and we are on the grow!
Becca Chase has been named Executive Director and is leading efforts to form new partnerships within the clinical trials industry. With a background in healthcare finance and non-profit management, she is uniquely qualified to implement systems that will enable the GGI program to stay true to its mission to advance global health and highlight the greater good of clinical trial participation by giving a vaccine to a child in honor of every clinical trial volunteer.
The Greater Gift Initiative is now an independent, not for profit organization as we step out from under the nurturing umbrella of our founding industry partner, PMG Research, Inc. We are grateful for the enthusiastic support given to the GGI over the last few years by PMG's management, coordinators, support staff and physician investigators. We're thankful that we can call upon their collective expertise when we have (multiple) questions or need advice - and they don't hang up!
The GGI has also grown into a new office space in Winston-Salem, NC that's a perfect fit for our program. We have some room to expand as we hope to host hordes of willing volunteers in the near future. Stop by - if you visit us on Harvey Street, we will buy you lunch and even let you choose the cuisine - Japanese or Greek!
And finally, we have completed an overhaul of the GGI website to reflect the most up to date program information. When you visit us online www.greatergiftinitiative.org please sign up for the GGI newsletter to receive quarterly briefs on our vaccine donations and program highlights. If you still have time to surf the web, check out the GGI on our Linkedin company page, Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twiiter @GGIgreatergift.
Looking forward to stacking the vax impact with you,
Innovative Strategies Director
