The 2019 LVEDC Fall Signature Event will feature a fireside chat with Stephen Tang, Ph.D., President & CEO of OraSure Technologies, Inc., a Bethlehem medical device manufacturer and global leader in the development and production of point-of care diagnostic devices.

Understanding human (and animal) health is more than reading a test result. It’s diagnosing disease. It’s linking patients to precise care. It’s unlocking the stories that our DNA can tell. It’s an inside-out and outside-in view of the trillions of bacteria and other microorganisms that make up the microbiome. Based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, OraSure Technologies, Inc. is powering global health through insights about what’s in us, on us and around us. Their innovative tools, diagnostics and services unlock access to accurate, essential information that advances global health and well-being.

Join us for a conversation with OraSure President & CEO Stephen S. Tang, Ph.D.

This event is open to current LVEDC investors only. Please call 610-266-6775 or contact Diane Milia at [email protected] to register. Sign up now to reserve your spot.
