THE STORY:

In 1981, Elizabeth (Carr) Comeau became the first baby born through in-vitro fertilization in the United States, so she knows just how important medical research is and the direct impact it can have on one family's life. 

Running the 2014 Boston Marathon is especially important to Elizabeth, who was on the finish line last year covering the event for The Boston Globe where she works when the bombs went off. 

She knew she had to do something positive after so much tragedy -- and what better way to make a positive impact than for running for a great charity on the front lines of science, research, and community health. 

The Forsyth Institute began its journey to improve oral health over 100 years ago. In that time, the Forsyth transformed oral health care practices, and discovered surprising links between oral conditions and global health threats like heart disease, diabetes, and even certain cancers and infectious diseases.

Oral health research is a powerful platform for solving personal and community health challenges. 

Forsyth's research and development promotes more than oral health and childhood wellness. They are unlocking secrets to longevity and global health  through research in:

• Diabetes, obesity, and heart disease
• Inflammation
• Personalized medicine
• Bone loss
• Tuberculosis and HIV
