“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
— Charles Darwin
Let’s face it: our lives have been forever changed since Mar. 11, 2020, when the World Health Organization officially classified the spread of COVID-19 as a global pandemic.
Since the arrival of the coronavirus on American shores shortly before that declaration, we’ve all come to recognize the paramount importance of scientific and medical research to our lives, arguably more than ever before. It’s almost as if someone punched the pause button for the entire planet until a vaccine is discovered.
Fortunately, we live in a golden era of health care and research, particularly here in the Baltimore metropolitan area with its renowned medical institutions, schools, centers, labs and health systems.
At Jmore, we salute the trailblazers and heroes in our midst. On Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 4:30-5:30 p.m., Jmore will hold its second annual celebration of health innovators at a virtual, business-to-business networking event and panel discussion, moderated by George Nemphos of Nemphos Braue LLC. Among the panelists will be Dr. Bruce E. Jarrell, the recently selected president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore. (For information, visit jmoreliving.com/HealthCare2020)
