Record-Breaking Attendance Empowers Donation To At-Risk Youth Foundation
PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 13, 2020 — Sciton Inc., a leading manufacturer of medical and aesthetic lasers and light source technologies, took its 2020 User Summit virtual on September 26th. This is the first time that the acclaimed summit, held by Sciton unveiled and shared industry-leading clinical applications, effective treatment techniques, and exciting industry trends, went digital.
Sciton’s 2020 virtual User Summit saw record-breaking attendance and donated over $40k to The Few Initiative.
Attended by over 750 medical professionals, the on-demand event featured a total of 17 industry leaders who shared the digital stage and provided educational insights on everything from approach, to marketing, to discussion on the future of the field. Celebrated guest speakers included Dr. Jason Emer, Dr. Jason Pozner, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, Dr. Julius Few, and many more.
Through these unprecedented times, Sciton continues to be dedicated to continuously providing support to its team and users. While Sciton complies with all COVID-19 safety measures, the company continues to innovate with novel technology, diverse outcomes, virtual educational events, training and consistent communication via remote technology. Sciton CEO, Aaron Burton, commented, “Though this has been a trying year for aesthetic events, I am incredibly proud of our team, who put on a first-class educational event for our providers around the world. There is nothing more important than the safety, well-being, and results our customers provide their patients. I’m equally proud that our team took this opportunity to partner with the Few Initiative for Children and support a great social cause.”
Seeking to further impact its community, all 2020 Virtual Summit ticket sales were donated to The Few Initiative for Children on behalf of Sciton’s Social Justice League. The Social Justice League is a newly formed team of Sciton employees, physicians, and industry providers, aiming to create meaningful social change in an effort to uphold Sciton’s motto, “Because Results Matter.”
To date, Sciton’s Social Justice League has donated $42,000 to The Few Initiative for Children, a 501(c)(3) founded in 2013 by Dr. Julius Few, which raises funds and provides financial assistance for services, programs, and opportunities designed to support the academic efforts of Chicago’s inner-city youth.
“In the face of economic uncertainty with corporate and consumer wariness, it’s refreshing to see companies looking outside of themselves and giving to charity,” states Julius Few, MD, Founder of The Few Initiative For Children. “The Few Initiative is changing the dialogue by investing in tomorrow’s leaders today. We will continue to open doors to success with Sciton’s generous investment.”
Aligning with its commitment to accessible learning, tickets to the Summit will be available for purchase with On-Demand viewing throughout the month of October. All proceeds will continue to benefit The Few Initiative.
