Who We Are
When asked why they enjoy working at Qessential, our team’s overwhelming response was that Qessential provides them an opportunity to make a difference in peoples’ lives. Because we’re strictly focused on medical technology and pharmaceutical research, our work has the potential to enhance a patient’s quality of life, and ultimately to affect society as a whole. Since many of us have a consumer-oriented, profit-based market research background, the satisfaction we get from working for patients through our research cannot be beat.
Our drive to make a difference shows not only in our work, but also in our everyday lives. As individuals, we support many different charities and causes, and as a company, Qessential seeks out new ways to support the medical community and the individuals affected by healthcare needs. We take great pride and enjoy immense satisfaction in making a difference.
The Qessential Garden
In the spring, one of our employees suggested that we take advantage of the extra land we have behind our building to create a small garden. The goal was to grow vegetables and provide them to the local food bank so that families in need would be able to have fresh vegetables. The whole team thought this was an inspired idea and the Qessential Garden was created! Having provided lettuce to the food bank at St. Vincent de Paul’s in Exeter, NH a few weeks back, we are about ready for another harvest. Now we are starting to see the tomatoes ripen, the onion tops bend, and the lettuce mature. We are excited to be helping, even just a little, to provide families with a nutritious meal! Special thank you to our neighbors, Churchill’s Gardens
for their kind contribution.
Walk to End Alzheimer's
During the weekend of September 22nd, several members of the Qessential team did a three-mile walk to raise funds towards Alzheimer’s research. We walked so future generations won’t have to face Alzheimer’s and to honor and remember those we have lost. As a team, we were able to raise over $1,200 and hope that our contribution will help Alzheimer’s care, support, advocacy and research.
Qessential Supports Rare Disease Day
On February 29, 2012, the Qessential team, in support of Rare Disease Day, brought awareness to a rare metabolic bone disease called Hypophosphatasia or HPP. It is hard to say how many people have HPP, but with increased awareness we look forward to the day when all HPP patients are diagnosed and receive treatment that aids them in living full and happy lives.
Rare Disease Day is an international advocacy day to bring a higher level of recognition to rare diseases and the challenges and impact these diseases have on patients and their families.
