PeriGen is deeply saddened by the tragic events and unrest gripping our nation.  We may spend our time developing technology to protect babies and mothers in childbirth, but our hope is that every baby born has the best possible opportunity to live a productive, happy life – contributing to this more perfect union – once they leave the delivery room.  That opportunity should not be constrained or threatened by race or religion, but far too often it is.  Recognition and mutual respect are the very first steps on a long road forward for this nation and I ask all of us at Team PeriGen, and all those with whom we work, to strive to lead by example.
