As the CEO of Proove, I understand the importance of genetic research, and will continue to support the efforts of the CFF in finding a cure for this disease - Brian Meshkin, CEO, Proove Biosciences
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2013
Proove Biosciences Inc., the leading personalized pain medicine laboratory, is proud to announce CEO Brian Meshkin has been selected as one of Howard County’s Finest Under 39. Meshkin is also the Vice Chairman of the Howard County Board of Education, and an avid supporter of causes to improve the lives of others.
The event honors young professionals who have demonstrated success in business, leadership in the community, and who are committed to fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event will be held on November 6, 2013 at 6pm, at the Turf Valley Resort and Conference Center.
The Maryland Chapter of the CFF is consistently a leader within the foundation through active volunteer participation and substantial fund-raising successes. Maryland Chapter volunteers plan, organize, and implement various fund raising projects throughout the year. The Finest Under 39 event will recognize honorees as prominent business leaders in the community, facilitate excellent networking opportunities, and promote fund raising towards helping to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
“It is an incredible honor to be nominated by the CFF for this designation. The team at Proove Biosciences works hard to ensure we continue to produce industry leading research, as well as the tools that pain treatment professionals rely on daily,” stated Meshkin. “As the CEO of Proove, I understand the importance of genetic research, and will continue to support the efforts of the CFF in finding a cure for this disease.”
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. When the Foundation began in 1955, most children with CF did not live to see their first day of elementary school. Today, the median predicted age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit http://www.cff.org.
