Tempus is a technology company that will collect, sort and analyze the clinical data from different organizations across the country and abroad to help in the research and treatment of cancer. The data gathered will be made available to different doctors, researchers and physicians to allow them to make better treatment plans for their patients. They have partnered with a number of different organizations and universities for the purpose of collection of their data and then analyzing them.
In a recent interview, the founder of the company, Eric Lefkofsky said that it was important to mix technology and medical science to be able to provide the researchers and the doctors with the right information that they need at the right time. Tempus is yet another effort to ensure that people with cancer that has increased odds can see a ray of hope and get treatment using real data and not just speculation. It is the aim of the company to provide as much information as they can to allow doctors to make better treatment plans. Eric Lefkofsky on Twitter.
Eric Lefkofsky, the CEO and the founder of Tempus is not new to the technology industry. He has founded a few technology companies like Echo Global Logistics, InnerWorkings, MediaOcean and more. Among these, the top is Groupon that now has a presence in many different countries across the globe. He is also associated with many different non-profit organizations. In fact, he and his wife, Liz created a family foundation under the name of Lefkofsky Family Foundation that has made a huge difference to many different communities. Apart from that, he is also a trustee of the Art Institute of Chicago for many years now. He is also the member of Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
Eric Lefkofsky is driven by passion when it comes to overlooking the working of his new company, Tempus. After his wife had been diagnosed with cancer, he realized how little information was there to help researchers and doctors to make important decisions. He wanted to create something that will allow cancer patients across the world to find all the information they need from one place.
Dr. Avi Weisfogel is not only known for his hard work and dedication within the field of dentistry, but is also recognized in the medical field for his outstanding research into the cause of sleep apnea. Avi Weisfogel’s research into sleep apnea was directly related to his knowledge of the formation of the human jaw. As a practicing dentist Dr. Weisfogel made it his goal to educate others about the relationship between dentistry and sleep apnea. It was this goal that led Avi Weisfogel to establish Dental Sleep Masters. This specialized clinic focuses on educating other professionals in the dental field about the relationship between dentistry and sleep apnea as well as providing information about corrective procedures.
More than 90 percent of people who have sleep apnea are not even aware that they do. The research Avi Weisfogel did on behalf of people who suffer from sleep apnea has made it possible for more dentists to address and successfully treat this condition. The work done by Dr. Weisfogel has also paved the way for new treatments to be developed as alternative methods to the traditional CPAP machines. With the founding of Dental Sleep Masters, Avi Weisfogel created a better understanding of what needs to be recognized by dental professionals in relation to sleep disorders.
Connecting with the World
While the breakthrough work Dr. Weisfogel made in regards to the relationship between sleep apnea and dentistry is extremely significant, it is in no way the only contribution this amazing philanthropist has done. Operation Smile is a world wide organization dedicated to helping young people and children who have major dental issues. This organization has helped correct conditions such as cleft lips and cleft palates in young people around the world at no charge to them.
When Avi Weisfogel heard about the charitable work this organization did he decided to support the cause by heading up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money. Since Dr. Weisfogel believes all children deserve a healthy smile he was the perfect choice to head the campaign. The objective of the GoFundMe campaign is to raise 2,000 dollars, which will be an easy task with someone as notable and conscientious as Avi Weisfogel leading the way.
