I found Dave Carey's presentation very inspiring. He expertly weaves his personal experience as a POW in one of America's more trying times with the ongoing, contemporary issues relating to the choices we face and the circumstances that influence these choices. Dave is very insightful of his audience and combines levity and contemplative matters masterfully.

I want to thank you for making the trip to Cambridge today to share your story and message of perspective with me and my Biogen colleagues. Your address could not have been more inspiring for the times. And, as a practicing Christian, I was particularly moved by your call to always keep the faith.
