Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) March 09, 2012
NovoPath, Inc., http://www.NovoPath.com, a leader in Anatomic Pathology Software Solutions, knows it's better to give than to receive. For the third year running, the company is a proud contributor to the Alzheimer's Association as an Orchid Sponsor of the Desert Southwest Chapter’s "A Love Not Forgotten" Gala. This elegant black tie evening is the only annual gala dedicated to Alzheimer’s research, support and care in Arizona. “NovoPath’s support of our 2012 Gala directly helps us fulfill our mission to empower and support individuals affected by this terrible disease,” shared Dan Lawler, Development Director for the Alzheimer’s Association.
In 2011, an estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages had Alzheimer’s disease. For those 65 and over, this translates to one in eight people, and for individuals age 85 and over, nearly half had Alzheimer’s disease. As the proportion of the U.S. population over age 65 continues to increase in the coming years, these ratios will continue to escalate. NovoPath’s community-minded focus ensures that key programs, services and the latest research are available to the millions of individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease.
Wally Soufi, CEO of NovoPath stated, “As with many people reading this, our family has been personally touched by this devastating, poorly understood disease.” In addition to the company’s commitment to the Alzheimer's Association, NovoPath supports national cancer research efforts, and celebrates their employees’ volunteer efforts at soup kitchens and a host of NGOs in their local community. Mr. Soufi encourages CEOs across the country to join him in finding and supporting the causes about which they feel passionate. He added, “We each have an obligation, and NovoPath looks forward to fulfilling that commitment by continuing in its support of the Alzheimer’s Association.”
