Hurricanes and wildfires wreaked havoc on the operations of many U.S. middle market companies this past fall. But new research shows that far more threatening and difficult to weather are strategic disruptions which could include immigration and trade policies now being decided in the nation’s capital.  

The National Center for the Middle Market’s (NCMM) new special report, Risk & Resilience in the Middle Market finds that strategic disruptions such as industry consolidation, changing regulations, new technology, trade agreements and macroeconomic trends are the most prevalent, costly and difficult for companies to recover from. They are also the risks that businesses are least prepared to handle. For more information please visit www.middlemarketcenter.org

Dr. Friedewald, is helping raise awareness about the importance of organ donation. He will also discuss some of the latest research available as well as Northwestern Memorial’s role in advancing treatment.

People who need an organ transplant are usually very ill or dying because of a failing organ. This can affect people at any age ranging from babies and small children to adults and seniors. Similarly, those needing a tissue transplant can also be of any age. In some cases, tissue can save lives. 

To bring attention to this, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the #1 hospital in Illinois wants to encourage your listeners to learn the truth about organ and tissue donation. Most organ donations take place after the donor has died however, some organs can be donated while the donor is still alive. This can be a great alternative to waiting on the ever growing transplant list and can help save lives.
