Today, we are excited to announce that our Co-Founder and Board Member, Jean Case, has been elected chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Geographic Society. We could not be more proud of her as she steps into this role with such an iconic organization.
Jean joins a successful line of stewards who have guided National Geographic to great heights over the course of its rich 128-year history. From her co-founding of ABC2 to her pioneering efforts at the Case Foundation and AOL, Jean has worked tirelessly to create opportunities that enrich people’s lives and the planet on which we live. We marvel at her innate ability to be both a student of the world and history, all the while fearlessly looking forward and forging an intrepid path.
National Geographic is driven by a passionate belief in the power of science and exploration to change the world. At ABC2 we, too, see our role as pioneers, exploring the newest and most innovative brain cancer research and bringing together the right people and resources to develop new effective treatments for patients.
We encourage you to read Jean’s thoughts on Medium about the incredible journey ahead.
