A highlight of the April 2013 Vatican Conference was the launch by The Stem for Life Foundation of one of its key initiatives to spread awareness about the power and promise of cellular therapy – The Student Ambassadors for the Cellular Age Program. The Program featured an inaugural class of 26 students representing 12 countries and 6 continents.
The Stem for Life Foundation seeks to inspire the next generation about the power of and advances in adult stem cell science and the role cellular therapy will play in medicine and in alleviating human suffering. Spanning many disciplines and ages, these students share a common belief in the need to spread awareness throughout the world on the here-and-now opportunities of adult stem cell therapies. Through their participation in the program, they have agreed to return to their schools to develop strategies to further this goal in partnership with each other and with their faculties and administrations.
At the Vatican Conference, the students attended all of the Conference sessions, promoted the message of the conference to their friends and peers via social media, and engaged with each other and the conference organizers to discuss future possible initiatives. The students returned to their schools empowered to spread the word about the healing cells inside all of us.
