Community partners

Raking leaves and helping to spruce up the courtyard outside the Matheny Center of Medicine and Dentistry were these Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation volunteers. From left: Sewhan Chon, Karin Hunziker, Ana Bastiani-Posner, Holly Crosbie-Foote, Duncan McKechnie and Lori Tempsick.

On October 4, Matheny received hands-on help from 14 employees of Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NPC), who helped clean up and beautify our grounds.  The employees were participating in the company’s 16th annual Community Partnership Day, a global initiative within the Novartis Group that reaffirms the company’s commitment to social responsibility.

According to Kevin Rigby, vice president of public affairs and communications at Novartis, Community Day enables the company to “share our resources with the communities where we live and work, provide employees with meaningful opportunities to give back and make a positive, long-lasting difference in people’s lives.”
