ABOUT US: Founders’ Story
Corvida Medical® is an emerging device company that was born from a passion and desire to make cancer care safer for workers and patients. The company’s co-founders, Jared Garfield and John Slump, started the company after one of the founders’ sister was diagnosed with cancer. The two discovered that each year, millions of healthcare workers are being routinely exposed to the hazardous pharmaceuticals prepared and administered to patients, significantly increasing the risk for cancers, infertility, miscarriages, birth defects, genetic mutations, and other adverse events.Both founders’ families have been impacted by incidents of cancer and it didn’t make sense to them that the healthcare worker who was preparing and administering a treatment for a cancer patient was in turn at high risk of developing cancer themselves. The founders and the industry experienced team that they have assembled are passionately committed to creating innovative technologies that ultimately enable healthcare providers to safely deliver the highest quality of care to their patients. This passion is fueled by dedication, determination and a commitment to making cancer care safer.
