MMS Holdings Executive Michelle Gayari Joins Advisory Board of International Nonprofit that Provides Educational Programs to Children in Hospitals

CANTON, Mich. (October 23, 2019) – MMS Holdings – an award-winning, data-focused CRO – announced today that its Executive Director of Global Operations Michelle Gayari has joined the advisory board for the international 501(c)(3) charity Together Educating All Children in Hospitals (TEACH). As its sole board member in the state of Michigan, Gayari will provide leadership, guidance, and fundraising support to help in bringing exciting, hands-on educational programs to children in hospitals.

TEACH provides children in hospitals with meaningful learning opportunities and social interactions, serving more than 3,000 children in more than 30 hospitals internationally. With the addition of Gayari, the charity has plans to increase outreach and expansion efforts in 2020.

“The mission of TEACH closely resembles our mission at MMS, in positively affecting patients’ lives worldwide,” says Gayari, “These children are our future leaders, innovators, and change-makers. In these times, we owe it to them to bring informative experiences that will motivate and inspire.”

Aligned with the support of TEACH, Gayari and her team of highly-experienced industry professionals operate MMS Academy – an online learning hub that provides continuing education for students, recent graduates, and working professionals.

“When children are in the hospital for a period of time, they need social interactions and the opportunity to actively engage their minds. TEACH fills this growing need and is grateful to have Michelle on our board to help further guide us,” Isaac Snyder, President, TEACH.

TEACH is actively seeking hospitals that are interested in adding this children’s learning program, as well as science programs within universities that would like to gather student volunteers. Request more information at
