Dear Foregen Supporters,
Welcome back to our most recent newsletter. We have some important updates for you, and an overview of the best parts of August.
What’s Happened Since Last Time
- Foregen’s core team met in Chicago earlier this week to set concrete plans for the future of the organization. Our primary topic was finance, but numerous topics about Foregen were discussed and we’re very excited moving forward with these developments.
- At the time of the release of this newsletter we are reviewing the final paperwork and in the process of submission to BJU International for their consideration for peer review.
- We’re working on releasing a video concerning the next plans for finances and funding. We wanted to have that video ready for today, but the sheer number of topics at the Chicago meeting did not allow us the necessary time. We hope to have that video out as soon as we can this month.
Foregen Conference in Chicago!
- We have a new podcast hosted by Jordan Arel with guest Brendon Marotta, director of the award-winning documentary American Circumcision, which was released on August 31st.
- You can find out more about Brendon’s film release here, and we are optimistic that it will garner more attention for the cause
- Many of you filled out our supporter survey that helped us get more information on our supporter demographic. For those of you that did, thank you! If you haven’t already, the survey is still open for those of you who wish to participate.
- For the month of August we reached a total of $9,572 in donations, which helps us move forward with the next parts of our mission! Be sure to inform other activists, friends and family about Foregen and the science we’re pursuing to one day help provide genital integrity to men around the world. Our overall total to date is $355,813 - Let’s keep it up.
Tell Me Something Interesting
- This piece discusses the creation of 3D printing scaffolds with bioinks in the context of bone tissue engineering, a developing field in orthopedics that incorporates materials science, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.
