Dexcom launches employee foundation
SAN DIEGO – Medical device maker Dexcom has launched the “Dexcom One Step Ahead Foundation: A Dexcom Employees Foundation,” a non-profit organization that will award grants to diabetes advocacy organizations. “It is empowering to be part of an organization where employees are emotionally charged by the work they do day to day and who want to give more of themselves to help others,” said Claudia Graham, senior vice president of global access at Dexcom and chairwoman of the newly formed foundation, who has Type 1 diabetes. Grants will range from $10,000 to $50,000. Money for the grants will be raised through employee contributions and fundraising efforts. Dexcom makes continuous glucose monitoring tools.
