FAV. QUOTE :: "To be sure, we need innovations to expand our knowledge and therapies, whether for CF or childhood lymphoma or heart disease or any of the other countless ways in which the human body fails. But we have not effectively used the abilities science has already given us. And we have not made remotely adequate efforts to change that. When we've made a science of performance... thousands of lives have been saved." - Atul Gawande, Physician, Journalist, Associate Professor
