Cary Medical Research, Triangle Medical Research, and PMG-RTP participate in Q-Day

The staff at Cary Medical Research, Triangle Medical Research, and PMG-RTP held a toy drive this holiday season, collecting toys to donate to the Duke Children’s Hospital 4th Floor Pediatric Unit. Duke Children’s Hospital offers comprehensive services for a wide variety of critically ill medical and surgical patients with acute, life-threatening disease and injury. The kids at the hospital range in age from newborn to – 19 years old, and includes those receiving treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and other life saving therapies, as well as patients with brain injuries and those with severe allergic reactions. Cary and Triangle Medical Research included their staff and the doctors and nursing staff at the practices they work with in their effort to collect toys for these children in need of some extra holiday cheer.

On December 18th, staff from Cary Medical Research, Triangle Medical Research, and PMG-RTP joined with the Quintiles Access to Patients group to participate in Q-day. Q-day is an annual event where Quintiles employees support local community charity work through providing staff the time and opportunity to support community efforts. This year, Q-day consisted of a gathering of employees from Quintiles, CaryMR, TriangleMR, and PMG-RTP to wrap all of the gifts that were donated as part of the toy drives so they could be delivered to the kids in time for Christmas morning. All involved had a great time at the toy wrapping party, and were happy to be able to give back to such a deserving group of children this holiday season.
