For the third consecutive year, Hologic, Inc. has renewed its partnership commitment to the USS Midway Museum’s education department as the naming rights sponsor of Midway University classroom #3. Hologic’s philanthropy supports the development of Midway’s STEM education onboard and distance learning field trip programs, and it provides scholarships to attend these onboard and distance learning experiences for more than 1,000 students from Title 1 schools and underserved communities.

As a global medical technology leader that champions the health of women, their families and their communities, Hologic develops devices for diagnostics, gynecologic surgery, and medical imaging. The company supports Midway’s educational efforts because it champions STEM education and innovation.

“Innovation makes it possible for Hologic to realize our purpose of enabling healthier lives everywhere, every day, and we’re proud to join forces with Midway to cultivate the innovators of tomorrow,” says Dru Greenhalgh in San Diego, chair of Hologic’s corporate philanthropy committee and vice president and assistant general counsel for diagnostic solutions at the company.

Hologic has nearly 1,200 employees in San Diego, where its largest facility is located, out of more than 7,000 workers worldwide. This local team specializes in molecular diagnostic tests for detection of cervical cancer, sexually transmitted infections, vaginosis, and other conditions that disproportionately affect women. The San Diego workforce also develops and manufactures tests that screen for respiratory infections, preterm labor, infections related to organ transplants, and assays for detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Hologic’s market-leading technologies also include the world’s first commercial system for 3D mammography, which has become the gold standard for breast cancer screening, and surgical products for uterine fibroids and abnormal uterine bleeding.

Since 2020, the company has further increased its impact through the Hologic Global Women’s Health Index, which represents the views of almost all the world’s women aged 15 and older, and efforts to reduce racial, income and other disparities in healthcare through its Project Health Equity initiative.
