Winston-Salem, North Carolina – Greater Gift, a North Carolina not-for-profit organization that gifts a child in need with a potentially life-saving vaccine in honor of every clinical trial volunteer and every clinical research professional who make advancing global health possible, today announced that Oracle Health Sciences has joined the program as a strategic partner so that they may thank customers and business partners in a manner that goes above and beyond traditional mechanisms of expressing gratitude.
Through Greater Gift’s current program, partners and supporters, more than 111,000 vaccines have been donated to children in need as a result of clinical trial participants and professionals being thanked for their contribution to medical advancement. Greater Gift’s partnership with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, facilitates vaccine delivery to children in third world countries. Currently, Greater Gift supports the pentavalent vaccine program, which vaccinates children against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenzae type B. “Most of us in the Life Sciences industry get involved because we are dedicated to passionately working to help others overcome or prevent health challenges. So, when a client, customer or business partner helps us at Oracle Health Sciences, Greater Gift provides us with a way to thank them that is aligned with their greater pursuit…we thank them by paying it forward and donating a vaccine to a child in need,” shares Katherine Vandebelt, Global Head of Innovation, Oracle Health Sciences.
“To have an organization like Oracle recognize the importance of uniquely expressing gratitude and doing so in a manner that contributes to the greater good is an honor for our organization and team. Together, we are changing perceptions and improving health through our partnerships”, says Amanda Wright, Executive Director of Greater Gift.
