Science is everywhere. It impacts our lives in every imaginable way.
From antibiotics and telecommunications, to genomics, precision medicine and 3-D printing, science has improved the human condition, leading to longer, healthier, happier lives for people all over the world. But science can also seem mysterious and complex. Now more than ever, science needs champions!
As a global healthcare company, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies is uniquely positioned to champion the role of science in society. We have launched Champions of Science, a multifaceted initiative to convene and catalyze champions of science, and engage people of all generations and backgrounds to see the unlimited opportunities that science brings.
To address the global challenges of the future, we need to identify and support next-generation STEM talent today. The New York Academy of Sciences is proud to partner with Johnson & Johnson on initiatives like the Global STEM Alliance, which is working to increase the number and diversity of students in the STEM pipeline.
Growing up on a college campus as the child of two medical school professors, I learned early on that science could be not only the pathway toward a rewarding and interesting life but also an invaluable tool for making the world a better place.
Our goal is to unleash the power of science and technology to advance the health of everyone, everywhere.
Science and technology can create a healthier future for all of us. Today, more than ever, science needs champions who can engage society in a broad way.
