ECI Sponsors 2017 BDSRA Event

ECI was honored to sponsor the BDSRA 2017 Annual Family Conference! The Batten Disease Support and Research Association is dedicated to funding research for treatments and cures, providing family support services, advancing education, raising awareness, and advocating for legislative action. Founded in 1987, by parents seeking to build a network for those diagnosed with Batten disease, BDSRA is now the largest support and research organization dedicated to Batten disease in North America.

The BDSRA’s signature event each year is the family conference where family members, children and researchers learn about patient care, education and the latest research.

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

Equipment & Controls, Inc. was honored to host more than 35 children in our Lawrence, Monessen and Solon offices for Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. This national day, celebrated the last Thursday in April, is an opportunity to encourage, inspire and introduce our children to the workplace. Children in grades K – 12 participated in a variety of activities and spent time learning about careers.

Events such as this are an important part of our culture of learning and employee engagement. It was a privilege to share our day with our employees’ children.
