Eric Lefkofsky Wages War On Cancer

Cancer has become the most common disease that has affected every corner of the world with a rapid rate. Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that eventually destroy body tissues leading to serious health issues or death. It can occur as benign (limited growth and don’t spread) or Malignant (uncontrolled growth and spreads). Fortunately, a company like Tempus has waged war against this terrible disease and has made significant progress in search of treatment for cancer. Eric Lefkofsky Co-Founder of Tempus has dedicated himself to fighting cancer.

Eric Lefkofsky awakening came after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. On following his wife’s treatment, he was surprised to find about the existence of a vast gap in the collection of data and digital technology. Though a lot of treatment information about patients got produced and gathered, there was no generated method designed to use that data that would be of paramount use when looking at the progress and treatment of patients. As a result of this Tempus took it upon itself to entirely change the delivery of cancer care by providing better and efficient ways.

Tempus came up with a platform that analyzed the treatment and genomic data of a patient to provide a much more precise treatment. Tempus also engineered software that played a critical role in recognition of optical character and processing of natural language abilities. Moreover, data in the form of structures got made from essential physician notes; this would paint a much clearer picture that would aid in the treatment of cancer.

Eric Lefkofsky was born in 1969 in Southfield, Michigan. In 1991 he graduated with high honors in Ann Arbor from Michigan University. Eric also attended School of Law of Michigan for his Juris Degree. Though his education credentials allowed him to pursue law he didn’t. Instead, Lefkofsky joined the revolution of the dot-com and quickly turned out to be a key player.

Company of Tempus headquartered in an area of Chicago is where Eric passes most of his time. Lefkofsky has practiced teaching in various universities in his years, and currently, he serves in business School of Chicago University as an assistant professor as he continues to fight the terrible disease of cancer.

How Betsy Devos Changed Education In America

A number of years has already passed since the first school choice program was started in the United States. Now, there are many school choice programs in almost half of all states. Much of this is thanks to the efforts of Betsy Devos, who has campaigned for many years for school choice programs.

 

Betsy Devos got started with the school choice movement before it became so popular. She saw the need for it, and she knew she had to do something about it. She started out by supporting one of the local private schools. It was a really good school that really helped its students succeed, and Betsy Devos and her husband kept donating money to it. The next thing that they did was start a scholarship fund for people who were in the low income bracket. They started giving out scholarships, but Betsy soon realized that although it was great to be able to help individual families, the fact was that if she wanted to accomplish something on the grand scale of things, she needed to do something else. That is when she started getting involved in promoting school choice programs.

She soon was sitting on the board of two charities that helped support education efforts for kids. She and her husband Dick were very influential in getting Michigan’s first charter school bill passed in 1993. They also started an effort to change the constitution in Michigan to allow the state to support private schools through tax vouchers, but they were unsuccessful in that regard. Betsy Devos believes that it was a shame, because so many families in Michigan could really benefit from having access to more schools.

 

However, Betsy Devos persisted and started taking her campaign for school choice nationwide. In many other states, they were more receptive to the idea. Thanks to her, there are now over two hundred and fifty thousand students in the country who are attending private or charter schools. This would not have been possible without the efforts of Betsy Devos and the support of her husband Dick.

 

Betsy Devos is now the Secretary of Education. She is the eleventh person to sit in that position. She was nominated for the position by Donald Trump because of her philanthropy and activism for children and her efforts to bring them more educational opportunities. She continues to do the same work as Education Secretary.
